What is Physical Therapy?
Pediatric physical therapists are specialized individuals that treat and examine children from birth to age 21 who have problems moving and performing other physical activities. They treat conditions related to genetic, neurological and orthopedic disorders including those that are pre-existing and those cause by illnesses or diseases. Techniques like functional/developmental training and exercise are used alongside medication and diet changes. Additionally, pediatric physical therapists use and recommend the use of specialized medical equipment that is designed to help treat and alleviate pain from conditions that hinder mobility.
