What is Pediatric Therapy?

Pediatric therapy is an engaging and rewarding field of medicine that addresses the natural process of human development. When that process is disrupted by simple or complex musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiorespiratory, gastrointestinal, or sensory integrative conditions including vision, it can affect your child’s posture, gait, and development. Most often, these issues can be caught early on and treated before secondary symptoms arise. The skeleton is shaped by the muscle pull on the bones, therefore earlier treatment is ideal o shape the skeleton and promotes optimal muscle strength and length. Early physical therapy treatment will prevent future injury, health risks and/or pain, all of which may occur in the later years.

At Jodi Gilray PT, PLLC, we specialize in the assessment and development of all these systems starting as early as birth and address the above body systems to allow your child to fulling interact and participate with his or her environment. This is all done through play and facilitation of proper musculoskeletal movement in all planes of movement with an aligned spine.

Our Client's Testimonials

  • Jodi has provided physical therapy for my daughter for 8 years. Without Jodi, I truly believe my daughter would not be able to move around as well as she does. As a young child, Jodi made physical therapy seem like it was fun and games. My daughter will never forget painting with her toes which was forcing her to put all her weight on the other leg side, thus strengthening it. Now, as a 12 year old, her therapy is not as playful but it certainly is as helpful.She has such a hands on approach and knows exactly how to engage with kids of all ages, always seeking positive end results for the child. She has a heart of gold and truly has a passion for helping each and every child that enters her clinic.
