Contact us for more information on how physical therapy could assist your child. 

Our physical therapists work with families to address challenges and delays in the areas of gross motor development, motor planning, and developing typical movement patterns. This may include addressing broader areas, such as normal development and quality of movement, and more specific areas, such as muscle tone, strength, range of motion, coordination, balance, and sensory integration. We treat children from birth through adolescence with limitations related to injury, disease, or congenital conditions.
