ORTHOPEDIC AND SCHOOL-BASED PEDIATRICS
The Revolution of Care for the Next Generation
PT Revolution provides high-quality pediatric care in both the out-patient and school-based settings. We are a state certified Non-Public Agency for the provision of Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy.
What is Pediatric Physical Therapy?
Our Pediatric Physical Therapy Team treats kids from ages 3-18. We see kids for a variety of different reasons, including bone/muscle issues, sports-related injuries, or genetic, brain, spine, or nerve disorders. During an initial visit, a PT will check your child’s strength, development, and see how easily they can stand, walk, and complete tasks appropriate for their age to see if there is a delay. If there is a delay, we also determine the degree and potential cause of the delay. From there, we devise a plan with you and your child to figure out the best course of action.
What Does a Pediatric Physical Therapist do?
We help kids improve their range of motion, strength, flexibility, and movement patterns so they can participate in the activities they love. Through the great medium of play, our pediatric PTs help make everyday activities easier and more fun for kids.
What Will My Child Do in a Physical Therapy Session?
For the most part, pediatric physical therapy sessions should look and feel like play. We engage kids with fun, age-appropriate games and activities to keep them motivated and engaged (kids should have fun, but physical therapy can be hard work!).
PTs help improve gross motor skills (tasks that involve large muscle groups, like walking and throwing) by encouraging kids to do things like:
Play on large exercise balls to build strength
Run/hop around to improve their coordination
Balance on a balance beam
Stand on one foot
