Physical Therapy

Is physical therapy right for my child?

Physical Therapy improves gross motor development, and coordination through meaningful therapeutic exercises and activities. Physical Therapy can enhance functional performance within the following areas:  

  • Strength 
  • Balance    
  • Endurance   
  • Coordination   
  • Gait    
  • Tone    
  • Spasticity


Physical Therapy Evaluation: 

A Physical therapy evaluation is administered by our Physical therapist. During the evaluation, the Physical therapist will assess the child's current functional status in the areas above. Together with the child and family, a treatment plan is developed with short-term and long-term goals to improve targeted skills and functional limitations. The frequency and duration of occupational therapy are also determined during the evaluation. The PT evaluation will last 60 minutes. 

  

Physical Therapy Sessions:

Physical Therapy sessions are performed by the Physical  therapist. The sessions are used to address the goals developed within the PT evaluation. The therapist provides one-on-one direct treatment integrating therapeutic activities to enhance progress. Parental education and a comprehensive home program are also provided to support the carryover of skills to the home and community. Each PT session is 50 minutes in duration.
