What happens during a PT session?

Everyday, I evaluate new babies I meet on their head shapes, muscle strengths, and gross motor skills. The other day, a parent filmed part of my session. While I cannot provide traditional physical therapy interventions at my day job (where we make helmets for babies with misshapen heads), I just started my very own physical therapy company (http://www.lilpeanutsphysicaltherapy.com).  This way, I can spend more time with babies who need more intense exercises at home to address their physical skills or neuromuscular limitations. Here is a sample of what I may show parents from time to time. As you can see, most babies do not enjoy getting stretches, but the more we do it the more comfortable they’ll be.  Enjoy!
