Physical Therapy for Children

In physical therapy (or PT), we work to enhance and restore mobility, functional competency and independence for individuals with neurological, developmental or orthopedic delays and/or disabilities. Our physical therapy for children helps them master skills related to independent mobility and gross motor function. Our licensed physical therapists utilize individualized therapy plans implementing exercise, specialized techniques/devices to encourage independence at home, school and in the community.

Our therapists, through ongoing evaluation and treatment, focus on improving your child’s muscle tone/strength, movement skills and balance capabilities to support the acquisition of all postural and gross motor skills such as sitting, crawling, walking, running and jumping.  Physical therapy services include evaluation, individual therapy and our fun community-based therapy programs.
