Physical Therapy — Speech Therapy — Occupational Therapy — Feeding Therapy For Infants & Children

Physical Therapy

 

Pediatric physical therapy promotes independence, increases participation, facilitates motor development and function, improves strength and endurance, enhances learning opportunities, and eases challenges with daily caregiving.

Our pediatric physical therapists work with children from infancy through adolescence and their families to assist each child in reaching their maximum potential to function independently and to promote active participation in home, school, and community environments. The physical therapists at Abilities in Action use evidence-based practice, which is the integration of research and clinical reasoning, to evaluate and treat children.
