Pediatric 
Services

Children can have injuries too, or sometimes, they just aren't learning how to walk as quickly as their peers. Early intervention can help kids to grow up healthy and not fall behind.

Pediatric Chronic Pain

While pain is more common amongst older adults, children can experience it too. Sadly this is not always taken seriously by healthcare providers. If you are concerned your child is more than just "whiny", or a "drama queen", then physical therapy may be able to help.

  • Juvenile Fibromyalgia

What to Expect

Pediatric physical therapy looks different than working with adults. Evaluation of your child's motor skills and treatment of their limitations are performed through carefully selected play exercises. Parents are required to be present for their child's session and will be taught play exercises to work on with their children at home to facilitate development of age-appropriate motor skills. It may or may not be helpful to include siblings in the exercise games. Your therapist may ask for siblings to be involved during therapy or ask that they are not present for therapy depending on your child's needs.
