Physical Therapy

What is Pediatric Physical Therapy?​

Pediatric physical therapists (PTs) are licensed health care professionals who work with children and their families to assist each child in reaching his/her maximum potential.  Pediatric physical therapy promotes independence, increases participation, facilitates motor development and function, improves strength and endurance, and eases challenges with daily care giving.  As primary health care providers, PTs also promote health and wellness as they implement a wide variety of supports for children from infancy through adolescence.
