Pediatric Physical Therapy
Our collaborative approach to Pediatric physical therapy eases challenges with daily caregiving while promoting your child’s independence and increasing participation in family and school activities. Pediatric physical therapy also facilitates motor development and function, improves strength and endurance, and enhances your child’s learning opportunities.
Our pediatric physical therapy plan will provide treatment for children who have problems with motor skills. Children may need physical therapy to improve motor development, strength, range of motion, endurance, balance, coordination, and gait. Physical therapy goals often include help with developmental milestones like sitting, standing, crawling and walking.
While most of our clients are referred to us by a pediatrician or primary care physician, contact us if you have noticed the symptoms below in your child’s development, as they are good indicators that your child may be experiencing a development issue. We provide free consultations, and all consultations include an in person meeting with you, your child, and our assistant director where we gather an assessment of concerns both from you and from observing your child, and review medical history. From there we provide a suggested plan of therapy based on the individual needs of the child, and provide you with an understanding of your insurance benefits.
Schedule your free consultation with us if your child has or currently experiences any of the following:
- Genetic disorders
- Cerebral palsy
- Spina bifida
- Developmental delays

Once your child begins pediatric physical therapy with us, we will create a therapy plan with one of our specialists for individual or group therapy.

Some of the therapies we use include:
- Neurodevelopmental treatment
