Pediatric Physical Therapy

Is your child not sitting on time, crawling or walking?, Is your child falling more than other children or having difficulty with performing stairs? Physical therapy can help your child achieve these milestones, improve balance and confidence. Pediatric physical therapy is focused on helping children return to what it is they do best, play and explore their world. This can include play based strengthening and manual facilitation to achieve a specific milestone or deal with a physical challenge a child may be having. Physical therapists can also create an environment that helps overweight children learn to become physically fit, help those with disabilities dance with the proper assistance, and create a yoga environment to build strength, flexibility and calmness.  In the area of toriticollis or consistent head tilt babies often require stretching and specific developmental activities to align their head in midline. A baby who has a persistent head tilt will begin to adjust to their visual world to that tilt, may have poor tolerance to tummy time, may use one hand more than the other, have decreased balance and will likely have difficulty performing gross motor skills symmetrically.
