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. 

The region’s largest team of pediatric-trained therapists 

Our team is dedicated to caring for kids of all ages. We offer therapy at six convenient locations throughout the region and specialize in: 

  • Orthopaedic or sports-related injuries 
  • Return to sports and school post-concussion 
  • Neurodevelopmental conditions (cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, etc.)   
  • Infant development and early intervention (developmental delay, torticollis, etc.) 
  • Post-surgery or trauma recovery

Our physical therapists help children address mobility needs through:

  • Balance and coordination 
  • Developmental skills 
  • Flexibility and posture
