Physical Therapy focuses on improving the overall physical health and development of children. It includes activities that are designed to help improve gross motor skills and mobility, such as posture, balance, flexibility, strength, sensory-motor integration, and endurance. There are many reasons that a child may require or benefit from physical therapy intervention. Some of these may be orthopedic in nature, involving bony abnormalities, weak muscles, asymmetries, or injury. Other concerns may be developmental, sensory, or neurological. Some diagnoses often seen by a pediatric Physical Therapist include but not limited to:

  • Developmental Delays
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Down Syndrome
  • Amputation: Congenital and acquired
  • Spina Bifida
  • Prune Belly Syndrome
  • Pediatric Strokes (CVA)

  • Decreased strength, balance, and endurance
  • Gravitational insecurities
