Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a skilled intervention that focuses primarily, but not solely, on relieving pain, promoting healing, restoring function and movement, and facilitation and adaptation associated with injury and disability.

Pediatric therapy helps children learn to successfully and independently perform gross motor skills (running, jumping, hopping) and functional mobility skills (ambulation, stair climbing, wheelchair mobility, transfers). Physical therapy also helps young athletes in preventing injury by addressing any muscle imbalance or weakness as well as help them to return to play after injury. A variety of treatment interventions are used including: developmental activities, therapeutic exercise, balance and coordination activities, adaptive play activities, mobility training, safety and prevention programs, and activities to promote overall wellness.  Conditions we treat….

 

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a service that helps people achieve independence in their daily life activities or “occupations”. In the pediatric setting, therapists use their expertise to help children prepare for and perform important learning and developmental activities. This typically includes muscle strengthening and range of motion of the hands and body, work on bilateral coordination (using two hands together), motor planning, visual perception skills, and visual motor skills. It also includes direct practice of the task, often with adaptations or modifications of the fine motor and self care tasks (cutting, writing, tying shoes) that are difficult for the individual child.

 

Speech Therapy

Speech therapy is a service provided by a speech-language pathologist that helps improve a person’s verbal and nonverbal communication skills. Depending on the area of deficit, speech therapy may focus on improving several different areas such as speech production, understanding and expressing language, social skills, and feeding or swallowing.
