Physical Therapy

Physical Therapists (PT’s) use a variety of treatment techniques to promote strength, balance, coordination, functional motor skills, and much more. Physical therapy works to achieve the most typical and efficient movement and balance for the child’s body. Our therapists assist children birth to age 21 with mild to severe deficits in gross motor skills. Whether using adaptation or working to strengthen and increase range of motion in body parts, PT’s can help a child achieve greater mobility and independence in their lives.
