MORE ABOUT

Physical Therapy

Physical therapists provide services that help children from birth through adolescence restore function, reach motor milestones, prevent/limit permanent physical disabilities, and improve mobility and strength.

Physical therapists focus on the evaluation and treatment of children with health problems resulting from injury, disease, or congenital conditions, with an emphasis on movement dysfunction.

Movement is the foundation for higher learning. The efficiency of a child's strength and mobility allows a child to maximize their independence. Gross motor skills such as rolling, sitting, crawling, standing, walking, running, jumping, climbing, skipping, bike riding, and ball skills are the foundation of gross motor development. Our expert pediatric therapists are also skilled in orthotics and equipment management.
