Why could children possibly need physical therapy? When most people think of physical therapy, they think of recovering from a back injury or shoulder surgery, or maybe they think of someone in a nursing home going through rehab after a stroke. However, children can often benefit from the services of a physical therapist as well, from newborns all the way through adolescents. Pediatric physical therapists focus on the gross motor development of children, and work to address any limitations that may impact that development.

Physical Therapists Treat:

  • Gross motor delays
  • Torticolis and plagiocephaly
  • Balance and coordination disorders
  • Neurological disorders
