Pediatric Physical Therapy

Our Pediatric physical therapist works with children and their families to assist each child in reaching their maximum potential to function independently and to promote active participation in home, school, and community environments. Physical therapists use their expertise in movement and apply clinical reasoning through the process of examination, evaluation, diagnosis, and intervention.

Pediatric physical therapy promotes independence, increases participation, facilitates motor development and function, improves strength and endurance, enhances learning opportunities, and eases challenges with daily caregiving. Parents and families have the primary role in their child’s development. The pediatric PT collaborates with the family to promote development and implement an individualized intervention program for the child. This can include: positioning during daily routines and activities, adapting toys for play, expanding mobility options, using equipment effectively, facilitating safety for the home and community, and smoothing transitions from early childhood to school life.

Treatment programs can include: therapeutic exercise, therapeutic activity, gait/running/stair training, balance training, neuromuscular re-education, aerobic conditioning, stretching, and orthotic recommendations. Treatment sessions consist of play-based interventions that are functional for the child.


Testimonials

Since Aiden started receiving therapy at Sensory Solutions a little over two years ago, I am continually amazed by the progress he is making thanks to his wonderful therapists and the team at Sensory Solutions. By addressing all of his needs in an integrated and collaborative way, he began making gains almost immediately. Aiden’s therapists do an excellent job of meeting him where he is each week, and tailoring his therapy to meet his unique needs. When Aiden started at Sensory Solutions he primarily used sign language to communicate; his therapists helped him communicate with sign language and used that as a bridge to speech. His therapists have worked together to ensure his sensory needs are met, along with his speech and motor needs, which has been critical to his success. As a parent, I have felt empowered and better able to help Aiden through the knowledge his therapists share. Aiden feels cared for and supported at Sensory Solutions, and looks forward to therapy each week. His strong relationships with his therapists are a credit to his therapists and a huge motivator for him. Aiden’s therapists know him and his abilities, and are truly dedicated to helping him reach his full potential.
