Owen had his first physical therapy session yesterday. His therapist, Nancy, was really impressed with his head control and his ability to lunge himself off his boppy. She said his overall strength is actually pretty good. The main thing that she wants to work on is his core muscles and his ability to lift his head from up from the laying position, when he is on his back. He does not enjoy sitting in his bumbo chair, which Nancy thinks is because it is just a little too much work for him. She suggested getting him a bouncy chair that will allow him to sit at a slight incline but not completely upright.
Nancy will be visiting in about 3 weeks, after we get settled in from our move. At that time she is going to bring some daily activity ideas and we can start some therapy on the exercise ball. From there we will decided the frequency of her visits. We are thinking about once every other week. She said there will be a lot more things we can do with him in a couple months when he gets a little bigger.
When did you guys start therapy? And what did you do?
