Our experience at Ohana Physiotherapy with our 11-month-old was fantastic! The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and attentive to our baby's needs. They created a warm and welcoming environment that made our little one feel comfortable throughout the sessions. The physiotherapists were gentle yet effective in their approach, providing tailored exercises and techniques to support our baby's development. We noticed significant improvements in our baby's mobility and strength thanks to their expertise. We highly recommend Ohana for parents looking for exceptional care for their little ones.

Mattia was the only one able to give me a diagnosis of my pain. He’s caring, professional and a very picky physiotherapist. Every session with him is very helpful for me. Amazing service, thank you Mattia 😊

Home visit for my 18 month old with Andrea was amazing! Everything she brought along was age appropriate, Andrea was very knowledgeable, and very gentle with my son when testing his mobility. Couldn’t highly recommend this service enough!

I used to think we had a very good physiotherapist, until we met Andrea and Soraya! They are the best. My little girl’s sessions are always fun but scientifically based! I always look forward to their updates as our little girl has her sessions while in kindy. She has massively improved and I am never going to look for any other physio. We are happily stuck with Ohana forever! They live up to their name because they treat everyone as a family. I look forward to your continuous success. All the best for Ohana team!

Mattia has been helping my son who has multiple disabilities with physiotherapy and has done an amazing job! My son is improving each week with both strength and confidence! Mattia is a very calm and positive therapist and has made my son enjoy outdoors and exercise in a fun way. Very helpful when it comes to ndis related questions, I highly recommend Mattia and I look forward to continuing with Ohana physiotherapy to see my son flourish even more.

Andrea responded to us on really short notice which we were very grateful for. She was amazing with my daughter and gave me and my wife the advice we needed so that we could relax. we will defiantly recommend her to our friends and family and we will see her if there are ever any more problems (we hope not though) .

Improving Ball Skills: Fun Activities for Your Kids’ Physical Development

Improving ball skills is crucial for children’s physical development and their engagement in sports and recreational activities.
At Ohana Physiotherapy, we specialise in paediatric physiotherapy in the Gold Coast and Tweed Coast, with a focus on NDIS services. 

Here, we offer tips and engaging activities to boost your child’s ball skills, making physical development a fun and rewarding journey.

1: Start with Basic Ball Handling

Kickstart the ball skill journey with a soft, lightweight ball, such as a foam or rubber ball. These are easier for beginners to handle and build confidence.

2: Catching

Begin with simple tosses and catches close to the body, using larger, slower-moving balls initially. Gradually challenge your child by increasing the distance and speed of throws. Encourage the use of both hands for catching.

3: Throwing

Teach your child proper throwing techniques, emphasizing stepping into the throw, using the opposite foot, and following through with the arm. Practice accuracy by aiming at a target, like a hoop or designated spot on a wall.

4: Bouncing

Enhance hand-eye coordination by practicing bouncing the ball on the ground and catching it.

5: Dribbling

For sports like basketball or soccer, work on dribbling skills by gently tapping the ball with the feet (soccer) or bouncing it (basketball). Emphasize control and precision.

6: Kicking

Develop kicking skills for sports like soccer or football by aiming at a target or goal. Focus on accuracy with inside-of-the-foot kicks and power with “laces” kicks.

7: Passing

Foster teamwork and communication by practicing passing the ball to a partner. Start with short passes and gradually increase the distance.

8: Wall Drills

Utilize a wall to improve throwing and catching. The wall provides a consistent rebound, enhancing hand-eye coordination and accuracy.

Remember, the key to successful ball skill development is to ensure that activities are enjoyable and age-appropriate.
Encourage your child to have fun, and celebrate their progress and achievements along the way.
Let’s make learning ball skills a rewarding adventure! 🏀🎾⚽️🏈🥎
