Pediatric Physical Therapy

Physical Therapists use physical means to enhance posture, balance and movement. They incorporate muscle strengthening and training to correct abnormal patterns of movement. Pediatric Therapists use what are called "directed activities" to enhance postural alignment, equilibrium, righting reactions, endurance and independent mobility.

Areas addressed in Pediatric Physical Therapy include:
● gross motor development
● muscle tone and strength
● neuromuscular function
● muscular skeletal status
● locomotion patterns
● postural control
● pre-gait and gait training
● splinting or bracing

Our Physical Therapists are certified in the following:
