Pediatric Physical Therapy is the treatment of disorders, functional limitations and movements that prohibit a child from performing their normal day to day activities. Physical therapy generally involves pursuing developmental milestones that have been delayed for any number of reasons.
At Pathfinder, our Pediatric Physical Therapists (PT’s) specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of a variety of congenital, developmental, neuromuscular, skeletal, and acquired disorders and diseases and will assist in the early detection of these disorders and limitations in infants, children and adolescents ages 0-21.
Our Physical Therapists will use techniques and routines that may seem like play to the child, but are actually designed to target areas of delay and difficulty through stretching, strengthening, and reinforcing in a non-threatening way.
The following Diagnosis/Disorders will commonly benefit from Physical Therapy Services:
- Gross Motor Function
- Clubbed Foot
- Gait Training
- Equipment Training
