What is Pediatric Physical Therapy?

Pediatric physical therapy is PT for a child under 18. Children can run into developmental issues that lead to mobility difficulties. While it may be easy for most people to lean over and pick up a newspaper or walk down the street, it may be challenging for children to face these challenges. That’s why pediatric physical therapy exists!

Our pediatric physical therapists have helped children that suffer from various problems. We work with children with bone, muscle, genetic, nerve, spine, sports-related injuries, and other disorders.

What Is The Best Age For Pediatric PT?

ankle painPediatric PT applies to any child or young adult under 18. The best age to bring your child in for kids PT or young adult PT is whenever you see a problematic development or if they inform you of one. It’s essential to book an appointment by contacting us because the sooner we can work with your child, the better. A study on the impacts of physical therapy showed that people that received physical therapy early showed significant improvement in their condition.

Early PT will also help your child by giving them confidence. Sometimes, children feel left out of activities because of their disorder. Depending on what the disorder is, early PT may help them participate in playful activities. It can also give your child an awareness of their condition and how to work around it.

Infant PT is the earliest time to start. It may be necessary due to a congenital disorder or a lack of development. Toddler PT and Teens PT may also be needed for the same reasons, but in some cases, they may need PT due to injuries received from playing, also known as sport-related injuries.

Which Conditions Improve with Pediatric PT?

  • Orthopedic impairments
