Happy World Physical Therapy Day to our wonderful TinyEYE physical therapists and to all the PT’s who make a difference in so many lives.
World PT Day generates awareness about the crucial contribution physiotherapists make, by enabling people to be mobile, well, and independent. A physical therapist is a health care professional that diagnoses and treats patients for conditions that limit their mobility. They consult with patients to gain information about their medical history and symptoms to develop a treatment plan. They also teach their patients proper therapeutic exercise techniques to promote healing and movement.
Talk about a rewarding profession!
Specifically, TinyEYE PT therapists treat children and teenagers who may have neurological and developmental delays as well as sensory impairments. Physiotherapy also helps children with biomechanical, positional and sports injuries. Not all heroes’ wear capes!
Believe it or not, remote physical therapy is an effective way at helping students develop strength, motor development, and the range of motion they need. With the current unstable environment today, many people are looking for ways to continue treatment while at home or school. Our physiotherapists can perform movement and walking assessments online. Essentially, the child will move different joints, muscles, nerves, and perform functional movements.
Using online tools, you will be educated on your child’s diagnosis and your TinyEYE PT can then give many tips and tricks to help. Your physiotherapist will carefully evaluate your exercise performance and give you cues to be even more effective.
