Physical Therapy

Physical therapy works to restore, maintain and promote optimal physical function. PT’s work to prevent the onset, symptoms and progression of impairments, functional limitations and disabilities. PT’s work to improve a child’s gross motor skills (everyday activities that use the body’s large muscle groups) which allow the child to reach their full functional potential and highest level of independence. Our physical therapists work to help children develop the independence and safety necessary to successfully participate in their environments. Our goal is to make the most of each child’s abilities, as opposed to focusing on their disabilities.

Who Needs Physical Therapy?

The need for physical therapy often arises as a result of a disability or congenital deficit. If you notice that your child has trouble completing age-appropriate tasks such as turning head to both sides, crawling or walking then physical therapy might be necessary. A visit to a Physical Therapist might also be in order if you notice your child is excessively clumsy, walks on toes, is regressing in current skills or not meeting developmental milestones.

Examples of areas of specialization:

A Physical therapy evaluation will assess, through standardized tests and clinical evaluations, the following:
