Physical therapists (PTs) are highly-educated, licensed health care professionals who can help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility - in many cases without expensive surgery and often reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications and their side effects.
Physical therapists can teach patients how to prevent or manage their condition so that they will achieve long-term health benefits. PTs examine each individual and develop a plan, using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. In addition, PTs work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
Pediatric Physical Therapy
Pediatric physical therapy helps children develop large or gross motor skills and builds muscle strength and flexibility to assist children in moving through their environment with the most efficiency. Physical therapists aid children with developmental milestones such as rolling, sitting, standing, crawling and walking, to name a few.
In addition to this, we work on the quality of movement that your child has. For example, your child may be walking, but may do so on their toes or with their feet pointed inwards, which can be addressed with physical therapy. We work with children and their families to improve strength and endurance, range of motion, posture, balance, movement skills, motor planning, and coordination.
At the Family Solutions Pediatric Therapy Center, our goal is to make every treatment session a fun and exciting learning experience to help children and their families accomplish their movement goals through play. Our facilities were specifically designed with children of all ages and all abilities in mind.
