Pediatric Physical Therapy
Children might need physical therapy services for several reasons, ranging from an injury to developmental delays. At Communication Corner and More, we provide physical therapy services that can help children improve their movement and activities in alignment with their needs and goals.
How Does Physical Therapy Work?
Physical therapy services are led by professionals who understand your child’s needs and how to help them reach their goals. A physical therapist teaches your child how to use certain muscles, increases their flexibility and improves your child’s strength, coordination and balance.
The therapist may teach your child how to use adaptive and assistive devices, such as wheelchairs or prosthetics. They will also monitor and examine your child’s progress and adjust the plan as necessary.
How Do I Know if Physical Therapy Is Right for My Child?
Your child might need physical therapy for numerous reasons. Common issues and challenges that can lead to requiring our services include:
- Falling or tripping frequently while walking.
- Walking on the toes or in another unusual manner.
- Missing developmental milestones like crawling, standing, sitting, rolling and walking.
- Underperforming or not reaching their prior function due to injury.
- Preferring to favor one side of their body or only turning their head to one side.
- Experiencing discomfort or pain while performing gross motor functions.
- Being unable to keep up with their peers during play.
- Having difficulty jumping, skipping and hopping, or being unable to do these activities at the same level as their peers.
At the beginning of physical therapy, the therapist will observe your child’s performance of age-appropriate activities. If the therapist notices a delay or another issue, they will develop an individualized plan to help your child improve.
