Pediatric Physical Therapy
A dynamic team, committed to the highest
quality of care.
Our pediatric physical therapists are highly engaged, on the forefront of the latest techniques and treatments, and completely passionate about what they do. With a goal of providing the most comprehensive care possible, our physical therapists use a number of treatments and advances on both an inpatient and outpatient basis.
Our care is about the patient. And the family.
At The Children’s Institute, we provide therapeutic and rehabilitative care that is personalized and family-centered. Because we know that the key to long-term success is family participation and understanding, we focus on the needs of the patients and their caregivers. We incorporate families into our therapy sessions, promoting understanding, a sense of collaboration, and confidence. In our experience, this approach is key to our patients reaching their maximum potential and living the most fulfilling lives possible.
