Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy

Our dedicated physical therapy team works to acquire maximum functional mobility in children with disabilities or injuries. We use specialized, one-on-one techniques to address gross motor deficits in gait (walking), balance, strength, range of motion, and safety in a playful and interactive environment.

    • Aquatic Therapy - Aquatic therapy (OT/PT) is occupational and physical therapy received in the pool as a compliment to land-based sessions to improve motor skills, strength and range of motion (ROM). Working in the water allows children to perform and learn movements that would otherwise be difficult to learn on land. The therapeutic temperatures facilitate rapid progress through treatment.
