The goal of physical therapy is to help your child move better and enjoy being a kid! Whether your child has a temporary or long-term condition, our highly trained physical therapists can help them gain new skills or relearn old ones involving physical and gross motor movement.  

Physical disabilities can be caused by a neurologic, orthopaedic, developmental or congenital condition – or might be the result of an injury. No matter what brings you to us, our therapists will work with your child’s medical team to conduct a comprehensive evaluation and develop an individualized treatment plan with the most appropriate therapies. Our services are provided in pediatric therapy centers with resources and equipment designed specifically for kids.
