How can our physical therapy services help a child in your life?
Pediatric physical therapy works to guide children who have injuries, illnesses, or developmental delays so they can grow and achieve their developmental milestones. Our pediatric physical therapists work with families to address a variety of gross-motor concerns (movements involving large muscles, such as legs, arms, and torso), including deficits in range of motion (the limit to which a body part can be moved around a joint), posture, strength, balance, and coordination. Our physical therapists help children improve their ability to participate in movement activities, such as crawling, walking, running, playing games, and participating in sports. Through physical therapy, children and adolescents who rely on mobility devices can learn how to navigate safely in various environments. Families are an integral part of pediatric physical therapy from the initial evaluation to the treatment plan. We believe family empowerment and hands-on education is crucial for success.
