Helping Your Child Grow
Physical Therapy (PT) focuses on optimizing a child’s functional mobility — their ability to move in order to accomplish daily tasks and activities — in order to help them participate in the home, at school, and in other community environments.
At Learning Tree Therapy, our focus is on increasing your child’s safety and independence with functional mobility. Some of the areas we help with include:
Physical Therapy can help by improving your child’s strength, balance, flexibility, motor control, coordination, and gross motor skills through age-appropriate developmental play. An important part of our PT is educating, equipping and empowering parents, to help optimize the carryover from our clinic into your child’s home, school, and community environments. Our goal is to help each child THRIVE in his or her own unique way!
PT Services are often provided for:
Gross Motor Developmental Delays
Orthopedic Abnormalities, Injuries, and Pain
Getting Started with Physical Therapy
- One of our amazing licensed and certified Physical Therapists will conduct a thorough assessment to evaluate your child’s gross motor skills, which can be impacted by strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, posture, in addition to other musculoskeletal and neuromuscular impairments.
- Based on our assessment, we’ll develop a customized plan for your child’s therapy and how we can best support you as a family. Our goal is to maximize your child’s potential by working collaboratively with our families and other professionals.
- We’ll carry out our plan, and we’ll reassess and adjust it as needed to evolve with your child’s changing needs. Eventually, we hope you won’t need us anymore — but we’re happy to be here as long as you do!
