Pediatric Physical Therapy at My Recess Therapy

What is pediatric physical Therapy?

Physical therapists are licensed healthcare professionals who are movement experts. They specialize in motor development and restoration of movement after an injury, surgery, or medical condition. The ultimate goal in pediatric physical therapy is to improve a child’s function to meet gross motor milestones as well as meet family and child-specific functional goals.

Treatment areas include: Strength, balance, range of motion/flexibility, endurance, motor control, functional independence, reducing or managing pain, decreasing caregiver burden, motor coordination, home exercise program instruction
