Pediatric Physical Therapy
Pediatric physical therapists work with children and their families to assist each child in reaching their maximum potential to function independently and to promote active participation in home, school, and community environments. Physical therapists utilize their expertise in body mechanics and movement, along with clinical reasoning for thorough evaluations, one-on-one hands-on treatments and interventions. Treatable pediatric diagnoses include Torticollis, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Developmental Delays, Arthrogryposis, Muscular Dystrophy, and more. Physical therapists also promote health and wellness as they implement a wide variety of supports for children from infancy through adolescence in collaboration with their families and other medical, educational, developmental, and rehabilitation specialists. Pediatric physical therapy promotes independence, increases participation, facilitates motor development and function, improves strength and endurance, enhances learning opportunities, and eases challenges with daily caregiving.
Pediatric therapists have a special interest and desire to work with children and families lend their unique talents and professional knowledge to children with many different conditions and strengths. Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants must be graduates of accredited educational programs and comply with rules of licensure, registration, and practice as applicable in any state in which they are practicing.
