Physical Therapy

The goal of physical therapy (PT) is to achieve the most typical and efficient movement and balance for a child’s body, promoting strength, coordination, functional motor skills, and more.

Our physical therapists (PTs) assist children with mild to severe deficits in gross motor skills. Their treatments focus on helping patients reach greater mobility and independence by working to strengthen and increase range of motion in body parts.
