Rehabilitation Services

Pediatric Physical Therapy

Pediatric rehabilitation services offers examination, evaluation and intervention for children, from birth through adolescence, who are experiencing functional limitations or disability due to trauma, developmental issues or disease.

Our team consists of physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists who work with patients and their families to develop customized treatment plans. Therapy sessions may include exercises, training in use of adaptive equipment or age-specific play-based activities to support your child's development and recovery.
