Pediatric Physical Therapy

Physical Therapists focus on helping children and their families to assist each child in reaching their maximum potential to function independently and to promote active participation in home, school, and community environments.

A treatment program is made specifically for each child using fun and educational activities. The child may need one-on-one sessions with a therapist, a home exercise program, special equipment to move, help managing care with other therapists and teachers and splints or casts to hold an arm or leg. Therapists use special equipment made just for children along with toys and play in order to encourage children to do their best in therapy.

Your child’s treatment is aimed at developing the sensory and large motor foundations necessary for mobility and large motor skill development.  Physical Therapy also addresses compensation techniques, the use of assistive mobility devices, and environmental adaptations needed for success in daily mobility.  We are committed to developing skills that will promote safety, independence, and improve quality of life.
