Pediatric physical therapists are rehabilitation professionals trained in the sensory and motor aspects of normal development and are qualified to evaluate and treat the special needs of infants and children. Physical therapists help the child to improve their ability to move, function and play in efficient and variable ways.
Our physical therapists collaborate with parents, physicians, and other care providers to establish the child’s individual physical therapy goals and treatment plan. Treatment sessions may include the promotion of symmetry of motion, balance, bilateral coordination, walking and other developmental activities using toys and equipment appropriate for each child.
Our physical therapists are also able to address the use of orthotic and other assistive devices such as gait trainers and wheelchairs in order to best promote participation within the child’s community.
