It’s important to remember that our kids are unique and to encourage their uniqueness. Find their strengths and interests because this is what is helping them to learn. It’s true for all of us, not just the kids.

Footwear habits influence child and adolescent motor skill development

Your feet, the way nature intended them to be.

Researchers show that regular physical activity without shoes may improve children’s and adolescents’ balancing and jumping skills.

Researchers show that children and adolescents who spend most of their time barefoot develop motor skills differently from those who habitually wear shoes. Published in Frontiers in Pediatrics, this is the first study to assess the relevance of growing up shod vs. barefoot on jumping, balancing and sprinting motor performance during different stages of childhood and adolescence. Results suggest that regular physical activity without shoes may improve children’s and adolescents’ balancing and jumping skills.

Regular barefoot time at home should be encouraged.

Massage for your infant can be helpful when she or he is diagnosed with torticollis.
Just like anything else with your baby, check with your pediatrician first. Besides the skin-to-skin contact stimulating can be good for muscles.

At Physical Therapy 4 Kids, we have been successful treating torticollis in infants for many years. Please contact us if you have any concerns about your baby.

As some schools are cutting the amount of recess time, other schools are adding equipment to help children with their gross motor skills and coordination.

This Australian school is changing recess.

“It meets their sensory needs and creates body awareness, helps with coordination, gross motor skills and also encourages communication development.

“It’s an outlet for them and they’re more settled when they come back inside.

“The kids love it.”

Physical Therapy 4 Kids, we can help your children with physical movement. Contact us to find out how we can help your child.

Meet Korbin Jackson

A 3 year old Alabama boy overcame severe scoliosis and infant torticollis in his neck with 2 years of infant physical therapy to become a ‘Trick Shot Titan’. Using a ping pong ball, he gets the ball into the cup every time!

Korbin is a huge fan of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson and loves the Harlem Globetrotters. His mom puts videos of him on YouTube  where he has 1204 subscribers. This happy boy is all over social media with the help of his parents.

Success stories like this are great to see. This kid makes us feel like anything is possible.
