Physical Therapy

phys-therapyElite Therapy Center’s physical therapy team is dedicated to assisting in early detection of motor development problems and identifying concerns with movement, posture, strength, developmental delays, body position, and functional independence in children birth to 21 with any degree of impairment. After an injury, physical therapists work to decrease pain and help kids return to daily activities. They teach kids exercises designed to help them regain strength and range of motion, and also show kids and families how to prevent future injuries.

Physical therapy might be needed any time a problem with movement limits someone’s daily activities. A physical therapy evaluation is often recommended for children with:

  • sports injuries
  • developmental delays
  • cerebral palsy
  • genetic disorders
  • orthopedic disabilities/injuries
  • heart and lung conditions
  • birth defects (such as spina bifida)
  • acute trauma
  • head injury
  • limb deficiencies
  • muscle diseases

Our PT team can help children in these areas with exercise, perceptual training, balance and coordination training, handling techniques, orthotic fitting and training & home programming. Therapy is provided in an atmosphere of FUN and play. The physical therapist will establish a plan of care and goals through collaboration with doctors, family, and teachers that will help your child to reach their full potential. Early intervention is important in helping to maximize a child’s future potential.
