What is Pediatric Physical Therapy?
Pediatric physical therapy is a specialized service that has a different approach than with our adult patients. It addresses conditions specific to younger patients that experience developmental delays, congenital defects, and orthopedic conditions.
Our approach is to work 1-on-1 with the child and have constant dialogue with parents/caregivers regarding the care. We also spend a lot of time engaging with pediatricians in the community to educate them on what types of services we can provide.
