We help children with a range of musculoskeletal conditions increase their strength and reach developmental goals.
Our team of skilled pediatric physical therapists evaluates and provides treatment for infants, children and adolescents with problems that affect the musculoskeletal system. Your child may need physical therapy to help with a chronic condition, developmental delay, or recovery from traumatic injury, sports injury or surgery.
Physical therapists use non-invasive tests to assess your child’s muscle strength, flexibility, joint mobility, endurance and gross motor skill development. Patients and families are directly involved in creating goals for the patient’s individualized treatment plan, and we work with parents to establish a home exercise program as needed.
As part of a comprehensive medical program based at a pediatric hospital that provides advanced, specialized care, our physical therapy team is experienced in treating children of all ages with complex medical conditions.
Based on your child’s individual needs, the goals of physical therapy may include:
- Reaching developmental milestones
- Improving balance/coordination
- Restoring strength
- Decreasing pain
- Improving ability to participate in school, hobbies or sports activities
