Pediatric Physical Therapy
We provide latest evidenced-based, multidisciplinary, family-centered post-acute therapeutic services to children. We provide a medical-based team approach to treating your child. Our therapists provide care for a variety of diagnoses and needs, from acute care to short-term therapies. We offer an initial assessment to determine therapy needs, and we provide an ongoing goal-oriented treatment plan with extensive family involvement.
Our therapists specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of infants, children, and adolescents with a variety of congenital, developmental, neurological, or acquired disorders/diseases. Our therapists are licensed professionals that will consult with other therapists to make sure we have a comprehensive plan of treatment in order to maximize your child’s functional independence while empowering both of you in the process.
Our physical therapists (PT) use a variety of treatment activities to help increase strength, endurance, and mobility for your child to be able to move within their environment. Physical therapists also evaluate for any adaptive equipment or orthotics your child may need to further his or her success. Whether using adaptation or working to strengthen and increase range of motion in body parts, a physical therapist can help a child achieve greater mobility and independence in their lives.
Physical therapy goals often include developmental milestones like sitting, standing, crawling, and walking. Our licensed physical therapists also assess the need for orthotics (like splints and braces) and recommend adaptive equipment.
Our hope is to set goals with the patient and family and do everything we can to help a child reach their personal best. The family is a key component in optimizing therapy outcomes. We want all of our families to feel that they are involved and knowledgeable about the therapy and care their children are receiving, because help and follow-through at home can make a world of difference in the effectiveness of therapy.
With caregiver collaboration and family-centered treatment, we provide a level of excellence in therapy that we are proud to share with you.
