National Kids and Pets Day and…..
April 26, 2022
On April 12, 2022 we posted our blog on how physical therapy can help with common pediatric issues. We highlighted our pediatric programs and how, Natosha Siemek, PT, DPT, can use her experience and expertise to help your child reach their full potential. Here we are two weeks later and now it is National Kids and Pets Day!
National Kids and Pets Day was created to highlight the bond between kids and their pets. Their pets can be an emotional support animal for the kids. Pets (depending on the type) can provide some companionship and love that is not tied or dependent on anything else. Their pet can provide an outlet for exercise and to burn energy. Pets can even serve as a companion for doing their physical therapy!

Whether we are treating them for coordination or developmental disorders, cerebral palsy, torticollis, pain, injuries, or sports injuries/dysfunction, pets can make that work more enjoyable.
If you have a pet and/or a child please use today to help them bond and spend some time with them. If you notice your child is not moving well, having pain, or not developing as you would expect please let us know and we can help get them on the right path!
Also, is it a coincidence that tomorrow, April 27, 2022, is National Gummi Bear Day!
