Physical Therapy

What is a Physical Therapist

A physical therapist utilizes various treatment interventions to increase strength, tone, range of motion, and decrease pain so kids can return to their daily activities in the community, home, school, and sports. A physical therapist or physical therapist assistant may work with a child who has a specific health impairment/disease, poor coordination, decreased muscle strength, muscle tone, or flexibility, delayed achievement of motor milestones (crawling, walking, jumping), functional mobility skills (ambulation, stair climbing, wheelchair mobility, transfers) or following an injury. Overall, they help children reach their full potential in the performance of gross motor and functional mobility skills.

Delayed Milestones, Spinal Muscular, Atrophy, Orthopedic Conditions, Chromosomal and Genetic Abnormalities, Scoliosis, Torticollis, Developmental Delays, Toe walking, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy, Neurodevelopmental Treatment, Functional Mobility, Muscle tone and strength, range of motion, quality of movement.

Everyone at ABC has been wonderful to work with. I love the extra homework that is sent with my daughter that targets the goals that therapist works on during her sessions. My daughter has made a significant amount of progress in just a few short months. It is great to get a carbon copy of my daughter’s progress notes each week. I would highly recommend ABC to any family in need of S/L therapy! - Parent
