Physical Therapy (PT)

Home » Physical Therapy (PT)

Physical Therapy (PT) incorporates a variety of treatments to help build strength, coordination, and balance to improve movement and develop gross motor skills needed to complete daily activities. They can help guide children through developmental milestones and make sure they can keep up with their peers. Physical therapists are often able to relieve pain and help kids resume daily activities. After an injury, physical therapists teach kids exercises designed to help them regain strength and range of motion, and also show them how to prevent a recurring injury. Physical therapy may be needed any time a child has difficulty moving in such a way that it limits daily activities.
