Our licensed physical therapists help children learn to effectively and safely move through their environment.
Physical therapy goals often focus on helping a child to meet developmental milestones like sitting, standing, crawling and walking. They may also address a child’s ability to jump, run with coordination, walk up and down stairs, and participate in physical education activities.
Physical therapists also assess the need for orthotics, splints and braces to improve positioning and mobility. They may recommend adaptive equipment, such as wheelchairs or gait trainers, and can help a family and child learn how to effectively use this equipment.
