Intensive Physical Therapy at Keep Moving Forward, Inc.
Intensive physical therapy at Keep Moving Forward Inc. can minimize motor delays and improve balance and coordination faster than traditional physical therapy. This is due to the increased duration and repetition of tasks, helping with brain activity reinforcement. We are also able to isolate muscles needed to initiate a movement or task. Our advanced state-of-the-art equipment allows patients to be put in positions, which allow a greater level of security in order for them to figure out how to achieve the movement independently with the assistance of our experienced physical therapists. This stability and security promote increased independence, faster growth in strength, and muscle memory.
Our Universal Exercise Unit promotes weight assisted support which allows for sensory integration and motor coordination as well as ability to achieve higher level and multi-joint tasks such as jumping.
The TheraSuit® allows for sensory integration and proprioceptive feedback throughout the body. This helps with the incorporation of senses through muscle movements. Our weight training activities, as well as equipment, (such as our pediatric treadmill and elliptical) help to incorporate increased strength, coordination and endurance.
This integration of multiple activities helps to establish a greater balance and fluidity within an individual allowing them to perform various tasks increasing independence in all environments.
