Pediatric physical therapy is a specialized practice that improves the lives and daily function of babies & children who suffer from a wide range of injuries and congenital conditions. The role of a pediatric physical therapist is to work with the child and their family to assist each child to reach their maximum potential to function independently and to promote active participation at home, in school, and in the community. Our Specialized Pediatric Physical Therapists treat babies & children of all ages for Torticollis, Flat Head, Developmental Delay, Tongue/Lip Ties, Low Muscle Tone, Cerebral Palsy, Balance Disorders, Sports Injuries, Neuromuscular Disorders…ALL IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR CHILD’S HOME!
Children often don’t understand why they are in therapy. Play, family involvement, and one-on-one care are exclusive to the pediatric therapists’ care of the baby or child. Fun and motivational factors are incorporated into functional activities to make therapy enjoyable. Collaboration of care includes recommending and training in orthotics, prosthetics, adaptive equipment, custom wheelchair seating systems and adaptive technology. In addition the pediatric PT provides family support including coordination of services, advocacy, and assistance with enhancing development.
How Often Will my Child Need PT?
Our In-Home sessions last 50-60 minutes and are recommended 1-2 times per week. The duration of therapy will depend on the specific problem and progress made. In general, once a child has achieved their therapy goals or progress has plateaued, therapy is discontinued. If new concerns arise, therapy can be reinitiated after a re-evaluation to establish new goals for your child.
