Pediatric physical therapy focuses on helping children of all ages become as independent and fit as possible with respect to strength, endurance, balance, coordination and mobility. This includes in the home, community, school and playground. At PPT, our therapists focus on enhancing your child’s development, restoring function, and preventing disability from pediatric conditions, illness or injury. Our pediatric physical therapists often make recommendations regarding the use and fit of adaptive equipment as well as other accommodations to enhance proper positioning, skill acquisition, or increased mobility in an effort to further promote functional independence. Parent and family education and training are also an essential part of our therapy programs.
