Physical Therapy

   Committed to Supporting the Whole Family
    Using a Pro-neurodiversity Approach

In the outpatient pediatric treatment setting, physical therapists create an individualized treatment plan for your child, including therapeutic exercises/activities and manual therapy techniques in order to optimize participation in daily life.

“Movement is a key to optimal living and quality of life for all people that extends beyond health to every person's ability to participate in and contribute to society. The complex needs of society, such as those resulting from a sedentary lifestyle, beckon for the physical therapy profession to engage with consumers to reduce preventable health care costs and overcome barriers to participation in society to ensure the successful existence of society far into the future.” -The American Physical Therapy Association
