Pediatric Physical Therapy

What is Pediatric Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy evaluates and addresses problems with motor skills. Children at different ages require varying movements and development to achieve the full mobility needed for walking, running, and climbing. Physical therapy works to achieve the most typical and efficient movement and balance for the child’s body.

Our pediatric physical therapists (PT) use a variety of treatment activities to help increase strength, endurance, and mobility for your child to be able to move within their environment. Physical therapists also evaluate for any adaptive equipment or orthotics your child may need to further his or her success. Whether using adaptation or working to strengthen and increase range of motion in body parts, a physical therapist can help a child achieve greater mobility and independence in their lives.

Our PTs work with children and their families to assist each child in reaching their goals to function independently and to promote active participation in home, school and community environments. We evaluate, create and provide individualized treatment for children who have difficulty with motor skills. Your child might need physical therapy to help with developmental delay, a birth defect, chronic illness or an injury. Physical therapy helps develop the strength and range of motion children need to move through their environment easily and effectively.

Physical therapy goals often include developmental milestones like sitting, standing, crawling and walking. Our licensed physical therapists also assess the need for orthotics (like splints and braces) and recommend adaptive equipment.
