Physical Therapy

Pediatric physical therapists are skilled health care professionals that are specialized in treating infants, toddlers, teens, and young adults through analysis of movement, motor development, and body function (e.g., strength and endurance). We design our individualized treatment sessions using a play-based approach to help children birth through adolescence restore function, reach motor milestones, prevent/limit permanent physical disabilities, and improve mobility and strength. Our functional activities incorporate fun and motivational factors to make therapy a positive enjoyable experience. As the needs of our clients change, we use innovative programs aimed towards teens transitioning to adulthood gain functional independence, fitness, and wellness for an optimal quality of life.
