Restoring, Maintaining, and Promoting Optimal Physical Function
Our pediatric physical therapists are specifically trained to help children improve mobility, motor development, posture, strength, range of motion, balance and coordination. This is accomplished through exercise, play, specific techniques, specialized equipment, and home programs that encourage the child to move in ways that develop their motor skills.
Pediatric physical therapists focus on movement dysfunctions and help children learn how to move independently or with assistive devices including walkers, wheelchairs, or crutches. We assess the need for braces or orthotics and perform evaluations for adaptive equipment. Our goal is to help each child reach his or her fullest potential.
Our pediatric physical therapists develop a unique plan for each child, and they are seen on an individual basis. Goals often focus on helping a child achieve developmental milestones such as sitting, crawling, standing, and walking.
