Detailed Information

 

One of the benefits of bowling is that it can easily be done with friends or a group with no pressure to converse with each other. Many of my clients enjoy talking about scores, ball colors, and the pattern that the standing pins make. One of my favorite things to do is to encourage people to cooperate instead of playing an individual game. As a group, we try to get the highest score we can.

Facilitating social skills is one of the best benefits of bowling.

One of my favorite therapeutic benefits of bowling is that it helps to build patience. A player must wait until the sweeper arm is finished doing its job before taking a second turn. Additionally, the ball needs to make its return to the player through the automatic system. Many of the people we work with become excited and have difficulty waiting their turn. To play the game, they must learn to wait until it’s their turn before playing again. Decreasing impulsive behavior is a common goal for many of my clients and bowling is the perfect way to work on this skill.

Finally, the muscles of the arm and entire body work together in order to throw the bowling ball. Core muscles need to engage for body stability. Leg muscles bend to provide a stable base for the bowler. Arm muscles co-contract to provide the motions of throwing the ball down the alley. This is not only great strengthening, but also great “heavy work” for people who may seek out more intense sensory input to their muscles and joints throughout the day.

If you would like more infomation about this activity or would like to know how your family member can get involved, please get in contact.
