Physical Therapy

Physical therapy offers our children the opportunity to participate in everyday activities with comfort and ease. Our biomechanical approach facilitates a child's development using proper alignment and postural stability techniques. We focus on improving core and peripheral strength to ensure adequate endurance during functional activities. We assist in the progression of agility and movement activities so that they may perform higher level complex tasks that are age appropriate. Our therapy is carried out with therapy balls, tricycles/bikes, in stairwells, on balance beams, on bolsters, using soccer balls, jump ropes, and hopscotch. We make therapy fun by turning it into a "game" and use "play" to accomplish the child's goals.
