What Is Pediatric Physical Therapy?

Pediatric physical therapy is a specialized branch of physical therapy that deals with the diagnosis, examination, evaluation, and intervention of children who are experiencing disability or functional limitations due to disease process, a disorder or trauma.

Our pediatric physical therapists work with children with injuries or illness that cause reduced mobility and pain. We teach children how to apply therapeutic techniques and exercises to relieve pain, improve mobility and overcome injuries or illness.

Featured Pediatric Service | Speech Therapy

We partner with Lighthouse Pediatric Therapy For Our Speech Therapy Services. Our Pediatric Speech Therapy treats children of all ages who have speech and language disorders, which are actually very common in kids who may suffer from other syndromes such as autism, down-syndrome, cleft-palette, head-injury, etc.

If you notice that your little one is having trouble putting sentences together, babbling, stutters or you have seen other irregular speech behavior, we recommend that you reach out to our certified professional therapists who are trained in the area of speech disorders and will put together a specific plan for you and your child to follow.

Our goal is to help your children thrive in a world where communication is critical. Find a location near you, and give us a call. Let's begin your journey today.
