Physiotherapy is a branch of rehabilitative health that is considered one of the most important aspects of treating children with Special Needs (Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Rett Syndrome and DMD). Children with Special Needs experience mobility, function, posture and balance challenges of varying degrees, and physiotherapy – which focuses on basic mobility such as standing, walking, climbing stairs, reaching or operating a wheelchair – is a key element in the multidisciplinary approach to increasing a child’s mobility.
Physiotherapy is the rehabilitation of physical impairments by training and strengthening a patient’s large muscles – those in the arms, legs, and abdomen. The goal of physical therapy is to maximize functional control of the body, or increase gross motor function.
Latest Therapy which has been more advanced and result oriented therapy for these kids are Suit Therapy and Spider & Monkey Cage Therapy.
