Pediatric physical therapy

Pediatric physical therapy (PT) emphasizes the development of gross motor skills and functional mobility for children with musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. Our play-based treatments are centered around helping your child achieve their highest level of functional independence. PT treatment includes, but is not limited to:

• Balance, coordination, and motor planning
• Strength, flexibility, and muscle tone
• Developmental motor milestones
• Walking and mobility
• Muscle and joint pain
• Assisting families in orthotic and equipment selection
• Pelvic incontinence, chronic constipation, dysfunctional voiding, and bed wetting
