IMPROVING FUNCTION THROUGH PLAY
The primary purpose of pediatric physical therapy is to assist children to reach their full functional independence. Our job is to support them and their job is to play.
Nora is thrilled to now offer PT for your little one in her brand new clinic located in West LA! She has previously offered in-home therapy and specialized in aquatic therapy in your warm pool, or therapeutic play at a park, playground or school. But is excited to now provide a playspace with all of the accoutrements including swings, an enclosed safe space and the use of therapeutic equipment. Nora B, PT's clinic is also a space for baby groups, networking events and many other opportunities for the community to gather.
Many children, including babies, will benefit from bodywork techniques to release any tension that may limit their ability to perform certain activities, such as a newborn's ability to suck and breastfeed, roll, or to remain happily in Tummy Time.
Nora takes the time to observe and engage your little one so that he or she can show exactly what their abilities and challenges are, while building trust and rapport between PT and patient, and then provides specific recommendations for you and other caregivers to incorporate into your daily routine for optimal carryover between sessions.
Improving function through play means that while your child is playing, she might not know that she is also engaging in a therapeutic intervention designed around her interest in a toy, game, book, or piece of equipment. Nora provides whatever support your child needs - whether working on strengthening,
balance, confidence, problem-solving, or coordination - while challenging them to improve in those areas. Each session will look different because each child is different and each day, they will present with new interests and abilities.
