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 physical therapists specialize in diagnosing, treating, and managing pediatric and adolescent age children through various congenital, developmental, neuromuscular, skeletal, or acquired disorders/diseases. Treatments focus on improving gross and fine motor skills, balance and coordination, strength and endurance, and cognitive and sensory processing/integration. Children with developmental delays, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and torticollis are a few patients treated by pediatric physical therapists.
