Physiotherapy

The fully equipped physiotherapy unit of OLS has been working with an objective to carry out correction and maintenance of posture, and improve gross motor integration and loco-motors of the child. Emphasis is given to toning of the muscles through exercises. Stretching is carried out to correct and prevent deformities and tightness, strengthen weak muscles and to prevent abnormal postures and movement. This is done not only through exercises but also by using newly introduced electrotherapy and radiation therapy. OLS trains the children to maintain normal posture and provides training on the use of gaiters and other external mobility aids. Activities are provided to improve fine motor function in order to improve the muscle coordination and normalize tone and strengthen the weaker group of muscles. A professional physiotherapist with assistant provides service from 10am to 4pm everyday Monday through Friday.
