Physical Therapy evaluates and treats disorders of the musculoskeletal system and conditions that limit your physical function and mobility. This may be due to disease, injury, surgery, stroke, chronic pain, or any number of reasons. Your physical therapist will evaluate the limitations and establish an individualized treatment plan that is right for you. Many physical therapy goals include reducing pain, gaining motion and strength, and improving balance and mobility to restore your independence in order to get you back to the level of lifestyle or athletic skill that you previously enjoyed. Clients of all ages, from the athlete to the elderly, can benefit from physical therapy services.
Pediatric Physical Therapy isn't just for orthopedic injuries. Our Pediatric PT team sees patients with several different diagnoses including: traumatic brain injury, developmental delay, cerebral palsy, torticollis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and down syndrome. They also treat children that have problems sitting, standing, running, climbing stairs, playing with peers, muscle tone, strength, and head control.
