Does your child have trouble with movement or balance?
Physical therapy helps kids improve strength, motor function, balance, and coordination. If you have a child that wiggles, slumps, or just can’t sit properly in a chair at school or home, frequently falls or seems clumsy or uncoordinated, tires easily while playing, or has difficulty keeping up with other children of the same age, he may benefit from physical therapy.
Gross motor delays or delays with sensory processing may be inhibiting your child from performing many age-appropriate gross motor activities. Pediatric physical therapy addresses strength, balance, coordination, endurance, and sensory integration for children.
Diagnoses commonly treated include: developmental delay, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism, neurological disorders, hypotonia, and genetic disorders.
