Specialties

Pediatric Physical Therapy

Pediatric physical therapy helps children with their ability to perform or improve gross motor movements like walking, running, and jumping. Our team specializes in helping babies, kids, and teens who have balance/coordination disorders, weakness and limited endurance, orthopedic and biomechanical issues, post-surgical needs, voiding dysfunction, or gait abnormalities, or who need wheelchair, assistive device, orthotic, or prosthetic assessment and training.

We’ll evaluate your child and design a treatment plan to address his or her specific needs. Best of all, our physical therapists know how to make therapy sessions fun! Your child’s therapy might include playing ball games, climbing ladders, swinging, or swimming.
