Physical Therapy -> Bilateral Coordination -> Dominant Hand / Non-dominant Hand

Dominant Hand / Non-dominant Hand

Most everyone has a dominant hand we write with or throw a ball with, but we want to make sure we can use both hands when we need to. Some things we do with both hands is catch a big ball or hold our lunch tray as we carry it to the table. PT can help us strengthen our non dominant hand/arm to make sure we can do these things with both hands.
