Pediatric Physical Therapy

Family Physical Therapy & Wellness specializes in treating children 0-21 with congenital and/or acquired disabilities or injuries. Our physical therapist has worked with children with orthopedic and sports injuries in outpatient and sports medicine settings, and with children with special needs  in rehabilitation, and school settings for over 12 years. At Family Physical Therapy & Wellness, we work closely with pediatric physicians, orthopedic physicians, Neurologists, Cardiologists, OT’s, ST’s, previous PT’s, orthotists, teacher’s, and anyone involved with the patient’s care to ensure that your child successfully reaches his/her goals. We also offer preventative screening if your child is thinking about beginning a sport, let’s find the dysfunction before the problem even starts, address it, and decrease the risk for injury. Children grow so fast, and often experience pain and discomfort during the process, and we don’t know if they are “growing pains” or a true problem. Why wait, bring you child in for an evaluation to be sure. If your child was born with a syndrome or disease it can be an overwhelming process, so let Family Physical Therapy & Wellness guide you through it. We can help you with finding referrals to additional services, vendors for adaptive equipment to be assessed in the clinic, and contacts for community referrals.

Some Common diagnosis/problems we treat:

  • Syndromes
  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Torticollis
  • Birth Injuries
  • Genetic Disorders

We work with orthotists and equipment vendors when necessary when we need equipment to increase joint stability, improve posture and improve overall function.

Family Physical Therapy & Wellness also specializes in rehabilitation after any surgery while working closely with the surgeon.
