Physical Therapy

Our Pediatric Physical Therapists evaluate and treat young children for difficulties with gross motor skills such as crawling, walking, and playing. Older children get specialized treatment designed to motivate and build self-esteem. The team uses a family-centered, goal-oriented plan of care.

Physical Therapy focuses on maximizing a child’s ability to functionally move through and interact with his or her environment, specifically addressing balance, coordination, and strength. Pediatric Physical Therapists use specific treatment techniques such as joint mobilization, electrical stimulation, infant massage, and respiratory support exercises to build the skills necessary to reach desired outcomes. Parent education and training are essential components in the child’s overall therapy program. Our highly trained therapists also offer post-operative rehabilitation and provide consultations for orthotics, adaptive equipment, and home modifications.
