We believe pediatric physical therapists are an integral part of the health care team. We coordinate care among providers including Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy, referring physicians, community services and school systems. Physical therapists work with children of all ages, from premature infants to young adults.

Children receive a thorough evaluation and treatment that focuses on promoting the highest level of function. Pediatric physical therapists work in partnership with families to establish meaningful goals, and they provide interventions that are developmentally appropriate, in a child-friendly environment. Communication with the child, parents and other specialists on the team is the cornerstone of all clinical care.
