Children of the modern age, are victims of a society that expects a lot out of them mentally and so little physically. They have been made to slave over books and lead a life of inactivity that has ensured that they will surely be patients even when they become Doctors in the future. Pediatric Fitness Medicine focuses on making children move – movements that will ensure better balance, superior co-ordination and better overall development that will, in fact, also make better learners out of them.
Pediatric Fitness Medicine is a preventive program rather than a curative one. When children are taught the importance of physical activity at a young age, they are able to make it into a lifelong habit. They also become instrumental in bringing about an attitude change in the entire family and motivate others to also take up fitness as a lifestyle.
Physical development and Brain development are interconnected. When kids are active, their brain develops, allowing increased concentration and energy.
Beyond the benefits of strength, endurance and co-ordination, studies have shown that early physical activity may also favourably alter selected anatomic and psychosocial parameters.
SPARRC’s Pediatric Fitness Physicians and Therapists work with children in a variety of ways to make the sessions productive as well as fun for the participants ensuring that children adopt fitness with enthusiasm.
