Physical therapists work with patients and their families to progress large motor and functional skills. Our team can help your child safely participate in activities at home, in the classroom or the playground. We look at the quality of a child's movements, balance and coordination skills, strength, range of motion and endurance for daily activities and mobility. Our therapists are also available to show your child how to navigate safely with mobility aids such as wheelchairs, orthotics and other supports.
Our group of physical therapists has home programs available for children with:
Gross motor milestones, birth-3 yo
Gross motor milestones skills, 3-6 yo
