Pediatric Physical Therapy for kids, infants, toddlers and children.

What is Pediatric Physical Therapy

Pediatric physical therapy is the practice of evaluating and treating infants, toddlers, and children in order to improve alignment and mobility. Pediatric physical therapy encompasses some of the basic components of adult physical therapy; however, pediatric therapy has some unique applications that should only be completed by a specially trained pediatric physical therapist.  One of the primary differences lies in the fact that infants, toddlers, and children are still growing.  For example, growth plates are open and injuries in the pediatric population differ from adults.   Another major difference from conventional adult PT is that pediatric physical therapy deals with the specific developmental phases of the infant, toddler, and child.  Primary means of mobility and specific muscle groups change in infants and toddlers from month to month according to the specified age group.  Specialized training in reflexes and age-specific neurological reactions for movement facilitation is of the utmost importance for pediatric physical therapists as it is one of the primary means utilized in physical therapy for infants and toddlers who are less able to follow motor commands.  Pediatric physical therapy may utilize pediatric specified exercise, positioning, balance training, stretching, movement facilitation, transfer training, gait training, sensory integration, home program and parent education in order to work to improve functional mobility.  Pediatric physical therapy delivery utilizes age-specific play and developmentally appropriate equipment and toys in order to improve mobility.
