Strengthening Exercises

  • A fun way to encourage children to develop muscle strength, balance, and overall body strength.
  • The following strengthening exercises are used by therapists to further develop muscle strength and improve proximal stability (stability of the joints closest to the body such as the shoulder girdle and the hip joint) thus providing the support needed for optimal postural alignment and endurance, improved balance, and age appropriate motor coordination.
  • Improved hip stability and lower extremity strength provides a strong foundation for controlled transitions into and out of positions, efficient gait, and improved mobility skills (running, jumping, hopping, and climbing).
  • Increased shoulder stability and upper extremity strength provides a foundation for increased hand strength and improved fine motor control and precision.
