Pediatric Physical Therapy

Our pediatric physical therapists assist children in developing and enhancing mobility so they may safely participate in activities at home, in the classroom, on the playground and in the community. We address skills that help children take part in important movement activities such as crawling, walking, running and playing games. Additionally, our therapists teach children how to navigate mobility aids, such as wheelchairs, walkers and other supports, safely in various environments. Our pediatric physical therapists provide evaluation, intervention and consultation in the following areas:

 

  • Gross (large) motor development
  • Muscle tone and strength
  • Posture/postural control
  • Pre-gait and gait training (gait refers to the pattern of limb movement)
  • Locomotion patterns (movement and travel)
  • Neuromuscular function
  • Endurance
  • Body alignment
  • Environmental adaptations
  • Positioning and mobility of wheelchairs, walkers and other mobility aids
  • Splinting/bracing/orthotics
