Physical TherapyMovement is a medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states
Pediatric physical therapy involves the evaluation and treatment of a child’s gross motor skills, range of motion, postural stability, balance, strength, vestibular, visual and sensory functioning needed to participate in daily activities.
Treatment is based upon a plan of care established by the treating physical therapist with the input of the child and family. Therapeutic activities will be uniquely designed to address the child’s functional goals. Our therapists are very skilled in incorporating play into activities in order for children to learn new skills doing what they do best. . .PLAY! They won’t know how hard they are working, but the improvements will be seen! The PTs at TCTS evaluate and treat children with the following common diagnostic conditions:
Torticollis is a condition in which the neck is twisted in one direction due to muscle tightness. Torticollis can be present in the womb or after birth. A developmental PT can develop a treatment plan that involves improving flexibility in the neck muscles.
Low muscle tone, or hypotonicity, refers to a muscle or group of muscles response to an outside force, stretch, or change in direction. The PTs at The Children’s Therapy SPOT can help a child achieve functional skills by improving muscle strength.
