If you have a child who has been identified as having difficulties with fine motor skills, it can sound a little scary. No parent ever wants to hear that his or her child is struggling. However, there is very effective pediatric treatment and therapy available to you that can help develop your child’s fine motor skills and enable her to function purposely in her environment.
What are Fine Motor Skills?
Fine motor skills have to do with smaller muscle group movements such as through the fingers, hands or wrists. The opposite of fine motor skills are gross motor skills which are movements related to your large muscles, like your legs, arms and other large muscles groups. (more…)

The Thanksgiving holiday is a time to gather with friends and family and reflect with gratitude — not to mention all the great food!
Unfortunately, Thanksgiving is also a prime time for some not-so-pleasant injuries. Don’t let an accident sideline your holiday. Stay injury free with these smart prevention tips.
It can be hard to keep your hand out of the Halloween candy bowl. And while a couple of pieces here and there may not be harmful, if you’re working on overcoming chronic pain or injury, overindulging in Halloween treats could be working against you, thanks to their sugar content.
Here are a few reasons why.
Even before that first cold front of the season blows in, your body knows it’s coming — especially if you have chronic pain. Many chronic pain sufferers, or those living with an injury, often report aches and pains triggered by cooler temperatures.
And there’s some science to back up that claim. When the barometric pressure outside changes, like it does when it’s damp or cold, the nerve endings of our joints are receptive to that, triggering aches, pains and stiffness.
When your child is injured, it can be especially challenging for busy families to make it through their already hectic schedules. Everything from eating a meal to walking around school or getting dressed takes extra time and patience.
At Sovereign Rehabilitation in Atlanta, our physical therapy specialists help children overcome challenges and injuries that impact their everyday life.
From golf, soccer, and other warm-weather sports to pool time and days at the beach – there’s no shortage of opportunities for fun, or injuries, this summer.
Thankfully, there are also some pretty simply ways to stay safe and enjoy the season.
