Pediatric Physical Therapy Strengthening Exercises for the Hips
My 30+ years of experience in pediatric physical therapy practice is yours! This book features stop-action photos and “how-to” tips to strengthen children’s hips. With exercise suggestions for hip flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, internal and external rotation, this book is a lifesaver for PTs, physical therapy assistants, instructors, caregivers, and parents. The hips are simply the first body part that we have targeted in a book, with at least three more target areas upcoming in the future. This book is perfect for telehealth. New physical therapists will love ideas to assist in treatment session preparation, planning, and programming. More experienced physical therapists will have at their fingertips a wide range of treatment suggestions for the hips to add more variety in their treatment sessions. These are all exercises I know well, but even I get stuck in a rut performing the same activities over and over. I will use this book as well to remind me of exercise options.
•237 hip strengthening exercises with a wide range of difficulties
•Commentary by a Pediatric Physical Therapist with over 30 years’ experience
•Stop action photos demonstrating the activity performed with a child
•With device screenshots, you are free to use these exercises in a home program with families or for use with physical therapy assistants
•Perfect for training physical therapy students or clinicians new to Pediatrics
Educators will finally have a tool with detailed pictures and commentary to give their students a foundation for pediatric treatment. In the past, so much has been available for evaluation, but frustratingly little for treatment! Physical therapists in third world countries can now have available exercise recommendations without the expense of distant training courses. I believe this book will change the quality of physical therapy across the world.
A pediatric physical therapist developed this book. Nothing can replace the skills of a pediatric physical therapist who can train caregivers and parents to perform these exercises safely and appropriately with a child with his or her specific strengths, weaknesses, and motivation. This book was written to assist therapists, not negate the need for them.
To facilitate easy home programming, I provide commentary with each exercise explaining, for example, tips on how to make the task more successful, how to make the activity more or less challenging, and the type of client with whom I often use the specified exercise. Why wait for 30 years of clinical experience, when you can have my suggestions now?
