PEDIATRIC PHYSICAL THERAPIST
Physical therapy (PT), is a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialty that, by using mechanical force and movements, remediates impairments and promotes mobility, function, and quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention.
Sometimes children may have physical limitations such as low muscle tone, poor balance, be un-coordinated, or have a combination of all the above. A physical therapist can address these areas. An assessment will identify areas of need and the physical therapist will design and implement an intervention to improve the individual child’s areas of need and increase overall function and participation.
