Customized, Evidence-Based Exercise Program
Our On The Ball pediatric occupational therapy and physiotherapy team believes a customized, evidence-based exercise program is essential for children's optimal health and well-being. Our exercise programs are designed to address each child's specific needs, considering their age, physical abilities, and any underlying health conditions. We base our program on the latest research and clinical evidence to ensure that each child receives the best possible care.
Our pediatric physiotherapists and kinesiologists begin by evaluating the child's physical abilities and identifying areas of weakness or imbalance during an initial assessment. This evaluation helps us develop an exercise program tailored to the child's specific requirements, including strength, balance, flexibility, and coordination. The program may include stretching, resistance training, and aerobic exercise, modified as the child's physical abilities improve.
Our exercise programs are designed to improve physical function, reduce pain and discomfort, and promote overall health and well-being in children and youth. It also aims to prevent future injuries and promote long-term physical health. By working closely with the child and their family, we ensure that the exercise program is challenging yet achievable, helping children reach their full potential.
At On The Ball, exercise is fundamental to pediatric physiotherapy and occupational therapy. It helps children and youth develop essential physical skills, promotes socialization and confidence, and enhances mental and emotional well-being. Our experienced team is committed to helping children achieve their goals and reach optimal health and well-being through customized, evidence-based exercise programs.
