Physical Therapy

Physical therapy focuses on helping children with physical impairments that are impacting their mobility, balance, coordination, quality of movement, or age-appropriate gross motor skills to help kids be as independent as possible, keeping up with their peers in a pain-free and safe manner. We 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/recreational environments. Physical therapists have expertise in movement, motor development, and body function (strength, range of motion, and endurance).

 

Areas that physical therapy can address include, but are not limited to:

  • Muscle weakness
  • Balance concerns (increased falls or clumsiness)
  • Postural concerns (standing and seated)
  • Mobility concerns
  • Gait abnormalities
  • Treatment of toe walking
  • Coordination
  • Assessment and treatment of torticollis and plagiocephaly
  • Birth to 3 early intervention treatment
  • Tone management (hyper/hypotonia)
  • Other neurological or genetic conditions
  • Equipment and bracing
  • Kinesio taping for pediatrics
  • Dynamic Movement Intervention (DMI)
