Pediatric physical therapy is provided by highly educated physical therapists (PTs), many of whom are doctors of physical therapy. Our PTs work with infants, toddlers, adolescents and their families to assist each child in reaching their maximum potential to function independently. Our PTs use their expertise in movement and apply clinical reasoning through the process of examination, evaluation, physical therapy diagnosis, and intervention.
Our Pediatric Physical Therapists employ a range of techniques that promote health and wellness, increase participation and independence, and improve strength and endurance by incorporating play-based intervention through consultative and direct therapy. Our therapists work directly with the school IEP team to assess and manipulate the environment for optimal learning through improved strength, endurance and balance. Our therapists can also assist parents and schools to choose the specialized medical equipment and bracing recommendations.
Utilizing a variety of formal and informal assessment tools, our Physical Therapists can assess infants, toddlers, children and youth who present with a variety of physical impairments or gross motor delays. Pediatric Physical Therapists use evidence-based decision-making for examination, evaluation, physical therapy diagnosis, prognosis, and development of the plan of care.
