PHYSICAL THERAPY FOR CHILDREN
WHAT IS PHYSICAL THERAPY?
With physical therapy, kids improve strength, motor function, balance, and coordination. The majority of the work our physical therapy team does is based in play. Our team uses play to promote functional movement and improve outcomes in all settings. This is why you’ll see swings, obstacle courses, tramplines, and tons of toys in our clinics. These play activites are important for your child’s therapy and will also help us create the child-centered environments where our child-clients thrive.
