Physiotherapy - फिजियोथेरेपी, यानी भौतिक चिकित्सा

  • The development of motor skills in your child is the foundation for both his/her physical and cognitive development. One of several areas affected in many forms of developmental delays is the inability to achieve motor milestones as predicted typically. However, the observation of gaps in motor ability must not be looked upon as a deficit your child has to live with for life. There are tools and means to help push your child’s motor milestones up the growth curve and an attempt can be made to achieve some of these missed milestones eventually. Hence, early intervention through physiotherapy must be sort out to fill gaps in motor milestone development as early as possible. This intervention will be reflected as visible changes in your child’s functional skills as they grow older.

    The sooner you seek help, the sooner you will see changes in your child, and the longer those effects would last in his/her life.
