Physical Therapy Telehealth: Ollie Feeds His Horse Apples


Video linked here.

Physical, occupational, and speech therapy at The Shea Center pushes forward! It may look a little different right now with plenty of social distancing, but our therapists continue working with clients in their homes via telehealth. Here, Oliver plays with his horse, “Boog,” to give him treats through the screen. His physical therapist virtually directed an activity for him to transition from sitting on the floor to kneeling up on his knees to strengthen his hip and core muscles, which will help him stand strong! Telehealth is available for current Shea Center PT/OT/Speech therapy clients. To inquire or enroll contact Trish at
