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.
Early Intervention is Key
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.

This is all done through play and facilitation of proper musculoskeletal movement in all planes of movement with an aligned spine.
