A Message From Our CEO
Nick met a milestone! He had a gross motor goal of holding motor movements for 30 seconds. Prone extension is similar to the “Superman” core exercise. Supine flexion is commonly referred to as a “silly bug” exercise. Nick held both of these positions for 30 seconds last week. Great job!
