What is a Pediatric Physical Therapist?
A Pediatric Physical Therapist is a very important tool for growing children who struggle with any sort of developmental difficulties or even athletic injuries. Many children experience injuries whether it is from playing on the playground or playing a sport. And while children heal quickly and often bounce back like nothing ever happened, physical therapy is an important element to their healing process. Not only can physical therapy ensure that they heal correctly and quickly, it can equip children with the tools to prevent reinjury and give them confidence and strength to be active and healthy. Pediatric physical therapy can improve a child’s balance, coordination, and mobility all while teaching them to have fun through safe activities.
