The importance of an EarlyStart

Medical research indicates that early intervention correlates with:

  • Shorter overall treatment duration
  • Optimal treatment outcomes
  • Greater likelihood of resolving and correcting all impairments
  • Greater ease for parents and caregivers to implement stretches and exercises with baby
  • Increased participation and compliancy from the child
  • Opportunity to be prevent the progression or worsening of the condition, which could otherwise lead to additional impairments
  • Preventing the potential need for more invasive intervention
  • Example: Early intervention with effective PT can avoid potential┬áneed for helmet to correct cranial asymmetry or flat spots
  • Example: Early intervention with effective PT for torticollis can avoid potential need for surgery to correct the muscle imbalance
