what is physical therapy?

 

What does it mean when my doctor recommends physical therapy (PT) for my child?  
It means that your doctor has some concerns regarding your child's overall gross motor development, delayed motor milestones or his/her functional limitations.

Would my child benefit from having physical therapy?
Many children who demonstrate delays in the areas of balance, coordination, gait deviations, have poor motor and postural control, torticollis, and overall decreased strength and endurance may benefit from direct physical therapy services.

How do I know if my child qualifies for PT?
A licensed PT will perform a comprehensive evaluation using specific standardized evaluation tools, skilled clinical observations and detailed history provided by you the parent. All the information from the evaluation including scores, medical background, functional outcomes, assessments, and recommendations will be discussed and provided to you and your child’s physician. If your child qualifies based on the standard guidelines, a plan of care and schedule will be set for you and your child.

If my child qualifies for PT, what will he/she be doing in therapy?
Your child will work with a fun and enthusiastic PT on functional goals by incorporating these skills and activities through various forms of play, therapeutic activities/exercises, and functional skills through creative fun. We love to challenge kids by encouraging them to improve their gross motor development and skills through innovative and creative activities. In addition, there will be lots of good ideas and activities given to parents so that many of the skills being taught during therapy sessions can be further developed at home.
