Physical Therapy

Pediatric physical therapy is concerned with the examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, and intervention of children, aged birth through adolescence, who are experiencing functional limitations or disability due to trauma, a disorder, or disease process.

We help children gain the strength, endurance, flexibility and skills necessary to sit, crawl, walk, run and play independently. For children who must rely on mobility aids such as wheelchairs, walkers, and orthotics, we teach these children how to use these aids effectively, while continuing to help them gain the strength, endurance and flexibility that they will need to one day walk independently.
