Making exercise fun can sometimes be a challenge, especially if the child isn't a great mood. So instead of making wobbly beams or boxes, I used 2 beams across a padded chair and the couch. This made the beams wobbly and, by putting a toy alligator under the chair, M. had loads of fun walking across the "bridge" and not letting the alligator eat him๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ. Note: This video was taken after M. did this safely 5 times. He was closely guarded to protect from a fall. Always stay close to the child to prevent injury. #funexercise #makeitfun #fun #bridge #playwithme #CME #cuevasmedek #cuevasMEDEKexercises #medek #medekboxes #balance #watchmegrow #amazingkid #amazingparents #quicktip #dpt #studentpt #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #getyourbabymoving

This #cuevasMEDEKexercises is always like a magic trick to me๐Ÿ˜Š It allows a child who cannot yet maintain sitting independently to experience it. How you ask??? VECTORS!! That's right, @ourlifeafternicu , VECTORS!!๐Ÿ˜‚ A vector is a direction of force that you create, in this case, with your hand into the support surface. It's so gentle and subtle, it's hard to believe it works. But once you understand how to use vectors properly, it a can be used in a multitude of applications to help a child achieve new skills and experience various positions ๐Ÿ˜Ž #cme #cuevasmedek #cuevasMEDEKintensive #tulsa #vector #sitting #balance #howcoolisthat #amazingkid #amazingparents #quicktip #dpt #studentpt #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #getyourbabymoving

Teaching a home exercise program requires patience and giving each detail enough attention. Since the difference between success and failure of an exercise can be just a centimeter or 2 of wrong hand placement or the wrong amount of support or pressure, give the time to parents and caregivers to try each one and be successful. I also encourage parents to reach out to me when an exercise isn't working. Usually, especially when they send me a video of them performing the exercise, I can talk them through fixing it. DISCLAIMER: This video is to illustrate the need to teach parents a home exercise program patiently and in full detail. Do not attempt Cuevas MEDEK Exercises at home without being trained by an experienced, skilled practitioner. #cuevasmedekexercises #cuevasmedek #medek #cme #sitting #homeexercise #patience #teachme #greatteacher #amazingparents #amazingkid #cpwarrior #watchmegrow #challenging #quicktip #dpt #studentpt #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #getyourbabymoving

I love #cuevasMEDEKexercises and how they can be adapted to each child's needs! In this video, I modified the standing balance on pipes exercise, usually done with ankle support, to "horsey" support, while moving the pipes with my other hand. It worked! Conner, with the sweetest voiceโค, balanced for longer and with better sustained extension in standing.

Happy Wednesday! In this #cuevasMEDEKexercises , the child walks on parallel narrow boards in 15cm boxes. Although it is scarier than traditional narrow beams because of the height, it also promotes great gravity awareness, proprioceptive input, and of course, dynamic balance to improve posture!

In this #cuevasMEDEKexercises, a child is tasked with walking up and down the stairs without holding a rail. Many times, as seen in this video, a child can be quite apprehensive. This can be due to age, immaturity, gravitational insecurity, or just good 'ole fear! By giving the child practice, encouragement, and TIME, he can be successful and move on toward better function and independence on the stairs!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ช #stairs #time #medek #cme #cuevasmedek #cuevasmedekawareness #independence #faceyourfears #quicktip #dpt #studentpt #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #getyourbabymoving at Far Rockaway, New York

When a child can't do a skill or exercise in its traditional or typical way, it's important to improvise. After all, we never know how and when the brain will make a connection to improve postural control, balance, etc. Maybe by modifying an exercise to accommodate emerging skills, we can provoke a new motor response.

School visit! Today I went to Yakir's Gan (AKA preschool) for a team meeting with the Physical Therapy Supervisor, the PT, the school director, and his parents to discuss strategies to help with carry over throughout his day. After a successful hour and a half, the team will implement strategies to make his day much more therapeutic, teach classroom staff handling techniques, and make decisions about which adaptive equipment is needed and when to use it best. In this video, after working to adjust a Rifton Pacer gait trainer to his needs, we tried it out in the hallway. He did Great!

Greetings from beautiful Israel!๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑโคโคโค Day 5 of my wonderful #cuevasMEDEKintensive is well under way. One of the aspects of #CME I love the most is how exercises are designed to create new connections in the brain by approaching each milestone and their sub-skills (AKA splinter skills) from various different directions. Since the brain is so plastic, we never know what will make the new skill "click", so trying to achieve the skills in different ways is so important. We have been working heavily on trunk control this week. As Yakir's trunk control is improving, it is important to mix it up. This exercise, straddle upside down to sit by midtrunk is a wonderful illustration of this aspect of #cuevasMEDEKexercises #medek #cpwarrior #intensive #israel #amazingkid #hardworkpaysoff #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #getyourbabymoving at Rosh Tzurim

Day 2 of my Israel #cuevasMEDEKexercises #intensive couldn't have been better! I worked with @tanzz123 to get Yakir to stand at the edge of the table with distal support. It always amazes me how an exercise can succeed or fail when support is off even by a few centimeters. This is why it is so crucial to take the time to ensure that every parent and caregiver be given the time THEY need to succeed. For carry over to work at home, it has to work for them, not just you! @tanzz123 @judahonickman , you are AMAZING!

Day 1 of my #CuevasMEDEKexercises intensive in Israel was great๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ. Although I only got about 3 hours of sleep on the 12 hour flight๐Ÿ˜จ, I hit the ground running and was able to work with 2 kids, about 1 hour's drive from each other. After completing the evaluation, I began to explore some dynamic trunk control activities that could help Yakir maintain postural control while optimizing gravity exposure. Here I am performing float by thighs and was able to move down to lower leg support in the air. Although he was unhappy at the challenge, he really did AMAZING!! #cuevasmedek #intensive #israel #posture #dynamic #gravity #medek #tekoa #travelpt #studentpt #dpt #dptstudent #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #getyourbabymoving at ืงื‘ืจ ืจื—ืœ ื‘ื™ืช ืœื—ื

#CuevasMEDEKexercises Alert!! Tandem walking is the ability to walk with 1 foot directly in front of the other. This can be challenging enough! In this #cuevasmedek exercise, this task is amped up!! Tandem walking on 1 narrow beam requires tremendous control to balance, adjust to the increased proprioceptive challenge, and make steps in the narrowest base of support, all while 6" off the floor๐Ÿ˜จ As you can see, Princess Fifi here had a misstep or 2, but powered through!! Great work rising to the balance challenge! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Ž #balance #proprioception #medek #narrow #tandem #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #getyourbabymoving

What a difference a year makes! Y., the child in this video, started with me a year ago. He took his first steps during our second session! One year later, I am able to perform this #cuevasmedek exercise with him, free standing on pipes, that allows the highest degree of freedom, requiring him to use his dynamic balance, postural control, anti gravity reactions, and maybe most of all, his CONFIDENCE!!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ #medek # confidence #dynamicbalance #posturalcontrol #antigravity #freedom #ilovethiskid #keepupthegoodwork #500followers #100thpost #studentpt #dpt #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #getyourbabymoving

Happy Tuesday! I love creating exercises with varied surfaces. In this #cuevasmedek exercise, Y. goes from inclined pipes to parallel narrow beams.

Israel, here I come!๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ As you may know, I will be travelling to Israel in a couple of weeks to do a Cuevas MEDEK Exercises intensive . (There are still some slots available, pm me๐Ÿ˜‰) So I wanted to reflect on the miracle of gross motor development. Isn't it amazing how by 8 months, for instance, a baby in the USA, Israel, and China are all sitting and crawling? Or how by 16 months, babies around the world are walking? This is because there is a natural blueprint of development that is intrinsic in every baby's brain. This provokes the brain to have certain skills emerge at different stages. I never get tired of seeing how those skills emerge at the proper times & how that baby experiments until they achieve it. As a therapist, I frequently reflect on how important it is to educate parents on proper timely development and to help babies achieve those milestones on time. It makes for a stronger brain and sets the child up for gross motor success throughout their lifetime!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’ช #baby #babydevelopment #blueprint #crawling #sitting #walking #cuevasmedek #intensive #helpmegrow #amazingbaby #international #israelhereicome #portofjaffa #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #getyourbabymoving

Happy Tuesday! A great way to challenge school age children is by using a T-stool. It's is a stool with a single leg that can be adjusted for height. Static sitting is a small challenge, and trunk rotation, combined with throwing and catching a ball thrown on and off center can be a HUGE challenge!!

Happy Thursday!! A great way to work on balance is to isolate each foot by touching, lifting, or kicking. In this video, J. needs to touch the tops of lightweight cones without knocking them down.

Happy Monday! It can sometimes take years to fully appreciate the fruits of your labor. I just experienced this feeling first hand. I was going through old treatment pictures and videos and came across one of baby Liba. I began with her just over 2 years ago. She was doing NOTHING! Minimal head control, no trunk control, no stability or mobility skills. A short time later, she began to perform a modified commando crawl. The pattern was so strange and out of the ordinary that I shot a quick video. After tons of hard work using #cuevasmedek exercises, Liba began to catch up. She is now 3 years old and is about to age out of EI. The videos of her jumping were taken this week! I am so proud of all her accomplishments!!โคโคโค #progress #jumping #workhardernotsmarter #cuevasmedekexercises #proudmoments #keepupthegreatwork #3yearsold #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #physicaltherapy #getyourbabymoving at Far Rockaway, New York

Happy Thursday! Jumping up and down the steps is a great way to work on core strength, jumping skills, safety awareness, and coordination. Notice how K. needs verbal cues to jump with both feet together and is holding the handrail. This generally occurs when children are fearful, and it's not necessarily an indication that they are not able to complete the activity. After this video was taken, she was able to briefly let go for one or two steps and complete the activity without any hand support! #happythursday #jumping #corestrength #coordination #stairs #safety #fun #schoolpt #platwithme #quicktip #kidsofinstagram #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #physicaltherapy #getyourbabymoving at Far Rockaway, New York

Happy Wednesday! Tandem walking means walking with one foot in front of the other in a heel to toe pattern. It is challenging because your child has to walk with a narrow base of support. A great way to practice it is on a balance beam. Encourage your child to keep their feet straight, rather than twisting sideways to widen their base of support to make the activity easier. Don't have a balance beam at your park? Make a line by placing masking tape on the floor or even draw one with sidewalk chalk! #balance #balancebeam #park #sidewalkchalk #takemetothepark #challenge #heeltotoe #tandem #happywednesday #playwithme #watchmegrow #mommytips #quicktip # #dadsofinstagram #kidsofinstagram #4yearsold #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #physicaltherapy #getyourbabymoving at Far Rockaway Boardwalk

Tip Of The DAY!! Creating balance activities is fun, but can sometimes be challenging. I like to incorporate various surfaces and degrees of wobble/surface compliance to target different dynamic balance skills. In this video, J. is starting on tactile stepping stones, which are soft and wobbly, and then jumping to a rigid balance board. Changing gears in this manner requires greater skill and ultimately, helps kids achieve better Balance! #balance #wobbly #coordination #fun #playwithme #ptschool #kidsofinstagram #familyfun #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #getyourbabymoving

Tip of the day!! If you enjoy exercise, chances are you have a physio ball in your home. (If not, they are pretty cheap online). Good news! It is a tool that many Physical Therapists have been using to treat kids. Try this at home. Sit or kneel on the floor and sit your baby/toddler on the ball facing you. Hold their pelvis or lower torso and slowly tilt the ball 45 degrees in each direction, then return to center. If your child has good control, they should be tilting their trunk, trying to come back to center when you tilt them.

Happy Tuesday! Why are some kids athletic and others can't seem to achieve even basic sports skills? A lot comes down to natural abilities, but there are things you can do to point them in the right direction! 1. Work on core strength from 3 months and on - We need proximal stability before distal mobility. In other words, if your core is strong, all activities which require your hands or feet will be easier. 2. Play with your kids consistently- Sports can be broken into what we call splinter skills. These are the smallest components of a larger skill, ie, picking up your arm to throw properly. By playing with your child, you will be a dressing splinter skills that apply to numerous sports activities. 3. Find activities your child enjoys- Coordination can be tough for some kids. The more your child enjoys something, the easier it will be to motivate them. So many skills overlap to various sports, so don't worry!! 4. Make it fun! #sports # kids # playwithme # athletic #strength #coordination #physicaltherapy #pediatricphysicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #getyourbabymoving

Shocking sonogram at the OB-GYN office: I saw a friend last night who told me that at a recent visit to the OB office for a routine sonogram, his niece was given the news that her baby has Spina Bifida, a serious malformation of the spinal column that can have lifelong implications. The family is shocked, sad, crushed. So many questions...so much is unknown. I sat him down and told him all I knew from a clinical perspective. In my 20+years of practice, I have worked with many children with Spina Bifida. Although that pain is still so fresh, he left with information on the condition and whom he could speak with to help his family prepare for this baby, and most importantly, he left with HOPE!

Tip Of The DAY!! Happy Thursday everyone!! At about 5-6 months, babies begin to "swim" on their bellies, called a Landau reaction. It is very significant because babies are learning crucial information about weight bearing, weight shifting, and building the extensor muscles that help them perform the next milestones which are pivoting on their belly, pushing up on arms, and getting on all fours to crawl.
