Physical Therapy

The goal of the Physical Therapist Practitioner (PT or PTA) is to make everyday activities that require gross motor strength and coordination for patients and caregivers! We provide services to help restore function, relieve pain, improve mobility, balance and coordination. We work with children who have suffered an injury or have a medical diagnosis presenting physical challenges to improve gross motor skills, build confidence, and promote independence.
