Pediatric physical therapists (PTs) treat children under 18, from newborns to teenagers.
They see children for a variety of different reasons, including bone/muscle issues (for example, scoliosis or athletic injury), sports-related injuries and genetic disorders.
Pediatric PTs 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.
For the most part, pediatric physical therapy sessions should look and feel like play. PTs engage kids with fun, age-appropriate games and activities to keep them motivated and happy.
