Pediatric Physical Therapy

Our Pediatric Physical Therapists at Children's Hospital focus on helping children and adolescents reach their full potential. Our therapists are specially trained in working with children who face developmental delays, neuromuscular conditions, sports injuries and many other problems that affect a child’s ability to develop and play.

We examine each child thoroughly and create a plan to promote movement, reduce pain, restore function and prevent disability. Our physical therapists will address balance, coordination, strength, flexibility and endurance to promote recreation and participation for healthy and active lifestyles.

Our physical therapists teach you and your child how to prevent or manage conditions to achieve long-term health and wellness benefits.
