Although most premature babies grow with normal abilities, the incidence of sensorimotor impairments is higher in them than in babies born after the normal time of gestação.Os advances in neonatal care have provided greater survival of infants at risk, especially premature, continually increasing the need for early intervention.
Early intervention, physical therapy aims to develop physical skills through stimulation of the sensorimotor system.
The therapist tries to develop motor skills through therapeutic techniques of neurostimulation and neuro-development.
From birth, it is essential to provide the child experiences normal movements and postures, with the aim of preventing the installation of abnormal movement patterns that may be harmful.
