Pediatric Physical Therapy

pediatric physical therapy

Our pediatric physical therapists have one goal: to help your child thrive. Whether they have sustained a sports injury or needs to overcome developmental delays, we have a provider who can help. Our plans reduce pain, improve range of motion, increase mobility, and address common areas of concern for clients under the age of 18. Best of all, our services can be done anywhere through teleconferencing!

What We Treat

If your child needs physical therapy, you’re not alone. Kids are unpredictable; it’s hard to know when they’ll be injured or show symptoms of certain conditions. Don’t be daunted by your doctor’s recommendation to start pediatric physical therapy. This non-invasive treatment method has long-term benefits that will help your child for years to come.

Conditions we treat include:

  • Sports injuries

  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)

  • Infant brachial plexus injury

  • Spina bifida

  • Torticollis

  • Developmental coordination disorder

  • Muscular dystrophy

  • Infant prematurity

  • Developmental delays

  • Cerebral palsy

  • Genetic disorders

  • Toe walking

  • Spinal cord injuries

  • Congenital anomalies

  • Childhood cancer

  • Down syndrome

 

Additionally, physical therapy may be recommended if your child has difficulties with coordination. If he or she trips often, loses balance when attempting to stand up, and struggles to keep up with other kids when playing games, there may be gross motor issues that require treatment. Fortunately, with proper care, these concerns may quickly resolve.

Convenient Care That Comes to You

Many children feel uncomfortable or anxious in doctor’s offices. That’s why Enablr Therapy offers online physical therapy. Our licensed treatment providers can deliver sessions virtually. This ensures that your child feels confident and safe while participating in their PT treatment.

Our sessions last between 30 and 55 minutes and include gait training and a variety of exercises to improve range of motion, balance, and coordination. Younger children enjoy activities like playing on large exercise balls, navigating an obstacle course, and running around to improve coordination. Our pediatric physical therapists are experts in working with both children and teenagers. They provide curated care that is engaging for each client, no matter their age.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are many ways that parents can help their children at home! If your child requires special adaptive equipment, like a wheelchair, be sure that they are using it properly. You can also ensure that they move throughout the day. Finally, encourage them to do activities recommended by their physical therapist. There are plenty of fun and creative ways to incorporate PT exercises into your child’s everyday activities!

Absolutely. Let your therapist know if you would like to speak in private before PT begins or towards the end of your session.

Yes, a parent or guardian must be present for the entire session. This helps the entire family gain knowledge that maximizes the benefits of PT.

Enablr Therapy’s providers can conduct pediatric physical therapy sessions anywhere, including in your home. We ask that parents prepare a clear, distraction-free environment for your child’s time with us. This ensures that they can focus fully on their session. Be sure that your son or daughter is wearing something they can comfortably move around in – think activewear rather than jeans.
