Physical Therapy for Children in Wake Forest

Moriarty PT pediatric physical therapyIf you need an inclusive physical therapy center for your child near home, look no further than Moriarty Physical Therapy’s Raleigh location. Every child deserves quality treatment to make sure they can attain an excellent quality of life. No matter what age or the condition, acquired or congenital, our team will assist with your child’s mobility and pain levels through our physical therapy programs for children.

What is Pediatric Physical Therapy?

Pediatric physical therapy refers to PT for children who are less than 18. Children are susceptible to developing issues that cause problems with mobility. Although it’s easy for many people to lean over to pick up an object, hold and read a book, or walk straight down a hallway, it can be difficult for children to complete these tasks when they have physical challenges. This is why physical therapy for children at our Raleigh-based clinic is so important!

Our Raleigh physical therapists have assisted children suffering from a variety of issues. We treat children suffering from bone, muscle, genetic, and nerve conditions, spine injuries, sports-related injuries, and other conditions.

What is the Best Age for Pediatric PT?

the doctor shows the exercises to the patientThe ideal age to get your child in for PT is when you see your child struggling with growth issues or when they notify you of a problem. It’s important to book an appointment by contacting us because the sooner we can work with your child, the better. A study showed that people that received physical therapy early showed significant improvement in their condition.

Early PT can also benefit your child in terms of increased physical confidence. Children often feel excluded from activities due to their condition. Early PT could help them engage in fun activities. It could also give your child a better understanding of their disorder and ways to manage it.

Infant PT may be needed due to a congenital problem or a deficiency in development. Toddler PT and PT for teens could also be required for the same reasons. However, in some situations, they may need PT because of injuries sustained during play, also called sports-related injuries.

Pediatric PT Can Improve Many Conditions

Our therapists have worked with children to improve their health and well-being for conditions like:

  • Orthopedic impairment(s)
  • Slow motor development
  • Problems adjusting to routines 
  • Walking gait irregularities
  • Down syndrome
  • Genetic diagnoses
  • And more

Don’t be concerned if your child’s needs are not listed here. This list is not comprehensive. We’re always willing and open to helping your child become more comfortable and relaxed through PT!
