BLUEBONNET PEDIATRIC PHYSICAL THERAPY
What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy (PT) addresses gross motor developmental milestones as well as increase strength, balance, coordination, endurance, motor planning, body/spatial awareness, primitive reflexes, and help caregivers with positioning and stretching activities for infants with torticollis and/or plagiocephaly.
