How is pediatric physical therapy different from regular physical therapy?

Pediatric physical therapy deals with treatment issues about children. The doctors have special skills and training in how to communicate and interact with the young ones. Pediatric physical therapists incorporate knowledge from several disciplines such as orthopedic, neurological and developmental.

Children often do not understand why they need the physical therapy. Family involvement and trained pediatric physical therapists smooth out the process and make the healing process as fun and interactive as possible.

Pediatric physical therapy focuses on improving lower extremity function, core stability, and motor ability. Because every child is different, the pediatric physical therapists create tailored programs which are based on prior evaluation and practices based on evidence.
