Physical Therapy

Pediatric physical therapy provides intervention aimed at promoting a child’s ability to move, function and participate in all environments. The physical therapist will analyze a child’s movement and perform a physical evaluation to diagnose the source of the child’s movement difficulties. Pediatric physical therapy promotes independence, facilitates motor development, improves strength, balance, endurance and eases challenges with daily caregiving.

While some children may reach different milestones slightly earlier or later than others, a significant delay may indicate your child could benefit from pediatric physical therapy.  A pediatric physical therapist can help your child reach developmental milestones by planning gross motor activities for them to practice. Through prescribed physical therapy play activities, your child can improve their motor skills and reach developmental milestones they may need support with.



Pediatric physical therapists can help children with balance by designing and implementing a program that improves muscle strength, flexibility, and balance reactions.  Balance training may include progressively challenging the visual, vestibular, and proprioceptive systems using play, functional, or task-specific activities statically or dynamically.  PT’s utilize a variety of equipment to improve balance that may include but is not limited to balance boards, discs, therapy balls, foam pads, playground equipment, gross-motor games, weights, theraband.
