Physical Therapy

Our therapists are here to help enhance coordination, strength, and balance.

Therapediatrics is excited to introduce Physical Therapy Services for Adults at our clinic.

Physical therapy can not only treat injuries and physical impairments but can also be used to prevent injury and improve long-term health. Properly applied, physical therapy can help children and adults perform better, recover from injuries, and even avoid injury in sport and play.

Benefits of Physical Therapy:

  • Pain management with reduced need for opioids
  • Avoiding surgery
  • Improved mobility and movement
  • Recovery from injury or trauma
  • Recovery from stroke or paralysis
  • Fall prevention
  • Improved balance
  • Management of age-related medical problems

Indicators for physical therapy evaluation for children

Kids need to have fun as they gain strength, balance, and coordination related to their gross motor skills.

Physical therapy helps children maintain or improve the use of their bones, joints, muscles, and nerves. More importantly, they obtain self-confidence and enhanced self-esteem as they improve sports skills, motor skills, and overall fitness.

Our therapists are educated in child development and will work with your child to enhance coordination, strength, and balance.
