Physical Therapy

It is important for children of all ages to be able to participate in functional activities in the home, school, and community environments with both family and peers.

Children with physical therapy needs often have difficulty with balance, coordination, strength, and movement. PT treatments help to improve a wide range of gross motor skills like rolling, crawling, sitting, walking, running, jumping, and play/recreation/sport skills. No matter what the age of the child, the ability to move safely and efficiently has a huge impact on their overall wellness and the ability to socialize and learn.

We work closely with the family, teachers, pediatricians, specialists and develop a plan and goals to help your child be successful in all environments.
