Pediatric Physical Therapy
Our goal is to help children develop their independence by learning safe ways to participate in the home, classroom, playground and community. We help with important activities such as crawling and walking, running, playing games and participating in sports. For kids who rely on mobility aids such as wheelchairs, orthotics and other supports, we work to ensure successful and safe navigation in their environment, as well as the maintenance of these devices.
Primary diagnoses and treatments include the following:
- Adaptive equipment
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Genetic syndromes
- Gross motor development
- Motor learning
- Motor control
- Myofascial release
- Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT)
- Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)
- Neuromuscular disorders
- Pre-gait and gait training
- Wheelchair positioning and mobility
Does my child need physical therapy?
If you are concerned your child may need physical therapy, speak to your child's physician about referring her for an evaluation.
