The right care for your child’s needs
Youth orthopaedic physical therapy assists in the early detection of health problems, in addition to the treatment of a variety of injuries and disorders/diseases that affect the muscles, bones, and joints. Treatments of children from infancy through adolescence focus on improving gross and fine motor skills, mobility, balance and coordination, strength and endurance, and cognitive and sensory processing and integration.
We utilize a shared team approach of working with the children/young adults and their families to work toward addressing your area of concerns and goals to improve physical movement. Our specialized physical therapists utilize neurodevelopmental training through tactile cueing to help pediatric patients achieve motor milestones. Your child’s therapist will assess and develop a treatment plan that is specific to the needs of your child using evidence-based techniques.
