Pediatric Physical Therapy

Our state licensed Physical Therapists will evaluate and treat the needs of the pediatric population through a wide variety of modalities. These therapists are specialized in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of pediatric and adolescent age children through a variety of congenital, developmental, neuromuscular, skeletal, or acquired disorders/diseases. Treatments focus on improving gross and fine motor skills, balance and coordination, strength and endurance as well as cognitive and sensory processing/integration. Children with developmental delays, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and torticollis are a few of the patients treated by pediatric Physical Therapists.
