What is Physical Therapy?
Pediatric physical therapists work with children and their families to assist each child in reaching their maximum potential to function independently and to promote active participation in home, school, and community environments. Our therapists are trained in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of infants, children, and adolescents with a variety of congenital, developmental, neuromuscular, skeletal, or acquired disorders/diseases. Treatments focus on improving gross and fine motor skills, balance and coordination, strength and endurance. Children with developmental delays, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, and Down’s Syndrome, and Torticollis are a few of the patients treated by pediatric physical therapists.
