Pediatric physical therapists are specifically trained to improve the lives and daily functions of children. The role of a pediatric therapist is to work with the child and their family to assist each child to reach their maximum potential to function independently and to promote active participation at home, in school, and in the community. Pediatric Physical therapists help kids improve their range of motion, strength, flexibility, and movement patterns. The goal? Help children move their bodies how and when they want to the best of their abilities. Pediatric PTs help make everyday activities easier for kids.
Physical therapy treatment sessions are typically recommended once a week for 50 minutes of actual treatment of the child with 10 minutes after to review goals and questions with parents.
