How Can We Help Down Syndrome As A Physiotherapist?

A physiotherapist will first determine the type and severity of difficulties the individual is having in the motor or gross skills then design individualized programs for treatment that may include the following goals:

  • Improving developmental skills:

Motor skills such as crawling, getting up from sitting to standing and walking can be mastered by the child with the help of physiotherapist. Hands on training can be provided by the caregiver for feeding, positioning, movement, play to encourage movement and communication development.

  •  Improving strength:

Games and fun tasks can be provided to improve muscle strength. The tasks can be adjusted as the child grows identifying new fitness activities that help to maintain heart health too.

  •  Improving balance, coordination and control:

Firm round pillow or an exercise ball can be used to improve the ability of the child to hold head straight and maintain correct sitting position. Other activities such as skipping, jumping can be used to maintain balance and control.

  •  Improving physical fitness:

Activity limitations or decreased participation with family or friends can be reduced by community involvement that will promote healthy lifestyle of the child. Also by diet plans and specific exercises one can improve physical fitness
