Physical Therapy for Children
At Care Options for Kids, we provide physical therapy for children to enhance their gross motor skills so they can more easily complete daily tasks ranging from sitting to self-care to play.
Build Your Child’s Foundational Motor Skills
Pediatric physical therapy is a rehabilitative treatment method for children who have injuries or conditions that reduce their independence and mobility. Our physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapy assistants (PTAs) are specifically trained in providing skilled, compassionate, individualized care to pediatric populations with mild to severe deficits in gross motor skills. Our specialists understand how difficult it is to watch your child struggle with daily activities such as rolling, sitting, crawling, standing, walking, running, eating, and playing. It’s our mission to make your child’s daily activities easier, promote their overall wellness, and work with your whole family to help make the best decisions for your child’s development.
Conditions That Can Be Treated With Pediatric Physical Therapy
It’s recommended that children are treated with physical therapy when they have injuries or conditions that reduce their independence and mobility. We commonly treat children with conditions such as:
- Disease processes, including cancer
- Musculoskeletal anomalies
- Postural abnormalities such as torticollis
- Developmental delays associated with autism and Down syndrome
- Sensory integration disorders
- Brain or spinal cord injuries
- Injuries from traumatic accidents
- General developmental delays
- Neurological differences such as cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, and stroke
- Heart, muscle, or lung conditions
How Our Physical Therapists Help
Our pediatric PTs and PTAs work with infants and children in-home or via teletherapy to help them build foundational gross motor skills. A pediatric specialist will create an individualized plan that focuses on correcting the functional challenges of the musculoskeletal system your child is struggling with. This may include activities that strengthen specific bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and joints. It will also prioritize reducing your child’s pain and helping them reach age-appropriate milestones.
After spending time evaluating your child’s abilities and unique needs, your PT may recommend adaptive equipment that helps your child get around better and supports their long-term progress, such as leg braces, wheelchairs, bath equipment, or specialty car seats.
In-home physical therapy benefits your child by putting them at ease and allowing for uninterrupted one-on-one care, which nurtures their ability to grow, learn, play, and thrive. It also sets them up to successfully complete tasks at home, where they likely spend the most time.
