Physical Therapy

The goal of physical therapy is to help children develop the strength, mobility, and motor skills that are necessary to efficiently navigate their environments and improve their participation at home, school, and in their communities. We strive to create and carry out fun, skilled, individualized treatment plans to address your child’s specific functional needs.

The physical therapists at Functional Kids Clinic treat infants and children with a wide variety of strength and mobility concerns. These concerns may include muscular weakness, gait abnormalities (toe walking, in/out-toeing), difficulty with managing stairs, decreased coordination, balance impairments, limited range of motion, joint pain, delay in gross motor skills (rolling, sitting, crawling, standing, walking, running, jumping, bike riding, ball skills), and more.
