Physical Therapy

Doctors often recommend physical therapy for children who have been injured or have movement problems from an illness, disease, or disability.

After an injury, physical therapists are often able to relieve pain and help children resume daily activities. Physical therapists teach children exercises designed to help them regain strength and range of motion, and also show them how to prevent a recurring injury.

Physical therapy (PT) may be needed any time a child has difficulty moving in such a way that it limits daily activities.

Doctors may recommend PT for children with:

  • Sports injuries
  • Developmental delays
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Genetic disorders
  • Orthopedic disabilities/injuries
  • Heart and lung conditions
  • Birth defects (such as spina bifida)
  • Effects of in-utero drug or alcohol exposure
  • Acute trauma
  • Head injury
  • Limb deficiencies
  • Muscle diseases

“How can Physical Therapy Help My Child?”

Physical therapists use a variety of treatments to help children build strength, improve movement, and strengthen skills needed to complete daily activities.

Physical therapists can guide children through:

  • Developmental activities such as crawling, walking and running.
  • Provide training to build strength around an injury.
  • Provide flexibility exercises to increase range of motion.
  • Work on balance and coordination.
  • Work on adaptive play.
  • Work on safety and prevention programs.
  • Provide instruction on how to avoid injuries.
  • Provide instructions for home exercise programs.
  • Recommend when returning to sports is safe.
