Physical Therapy: Down Syndrome
Children with Down syndrome have a number of physical and muscular challenges that other children do not face. Hypotonia (lack of muscle tone) is a problem that many Down syndrome children have. They also tend to suffer from:
1) Loose ligaments
2) Irregular or inefficient walking pattern
3) Foot and leg joint pain
4) Poor posture
The good news is that all of these are treatable with a good physical therapist that specializes in Down syndrome children. Our specialists can create a program for your child that will help them overcome one or more of the challenges listed above and put them on the path to leading a better life.
Call us today and schedule an appointment so we can create a custom plan for your child's needs. We would love to help.
