Physical Therapists (PT) help clients to develop strength and coordination that will lead to success in motor skills. A PT is professionally trained in biological, physical and medical sciences. They are required to complete clinical rotations, pass licensing exams and must be licensed to practice in Texas. Continued education is required annually and pediatrics is a specialty field of physical therapy.
How can a Physical Therapist Help?
Our physical therapists evaluate and treat children with or at risk of movement dysfunction. Your child might need physical therapy to help with a variant of congenital, developmental, or neuromuscular disorders and diseases.
Our physical therapists help children develop the strength and range of motion needed to move through their environments easily and effectively. Physical therapy goals often included reaching age-appropriate developmental milestones like sitting, crawling, walking and running. PT’s also assess the need for adaptive equipment and/or orthotics.
