The Goals of Pediatric Physical Therapy
The main goal of the pediatric physical therapy program is to minimize disability, and help the children get back to the activities they do best – play, attend school, and participate in community activities.
We provide care that is designed to achieve the following:
- Improve mobility
- Develop or restore function
- Relieve pain
- Promote overall health & wellbeing
- Prevent, slow down, or decrease the impact of physical disabilities
Pediatric physical therapy promotes independence, increases participation, facilitates motor development and function, improves strength and endurance, enhances learning opportunities, and eases challenges with daily caregiving.
