Pediatric Physical Therapy

The primary focus of pediatric physical therapy is to help children from all ages, ranging from newborn to teenagers, move to the best of their ability. Therapy activities are play-based and tailored to each child's age and individual goals.

Activities may include, but are not limited to:

  • Gross motor skills (activities such as crawling, walking, running, and climbing stairs)

  • Balance and posture control

  • Strengthening and coordination

Our program provides services to children with a wide range of diagnoses—including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Prematurity

  • Developmental delay

  • Torticollis

  • Idiopathic toe walking

  • Cerebral palsy

  • Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis

  • Genetic syndromes

  • Traumatic injuries

  • Cancer & blood-related diagnoses

  • Sports injuries

  • Musculoskeletal disorders

  • Neurological injuries

When to refer

A child might benefit from a physical therapy evaluation and/or ongoing treatment if they experience the following:

  • Delayed milestones

  • High or low muscle tone (hyper- or hypotonia)

  • Weakness in the legs or trunk

  • Tight or stiff muscles

  • Clumsiness or poor endurance

  • Falling or balance problems

  • Unusual standing/walking pattern or toe walking

  • Leg or foot pain

  • Poor endurance (tires easily)

  • Trouble "keeping up" with the activities of same-aged children
