It’s not easy to hear your child complain about pain or receiving a diagnosis from their pediatrician that requires additional treatment. A parent may feel unsure about how physical therapy can help their child.
At Ortho PT, our therapists are all qualified to treat children with the same orthopedic conditions we see in adults. We also treat a variety of conditions affecting young children including:
- Toe walking
- Post-fracture strengthening
- Gait training
- Growing pains
- Sports injuries
- Sprains & strains
- Back & neck pain resulting from an auto accident
We have special tools and exercises to make PT as fun and as painless as possible for our young patients. In fact, many members of clinical staff are parents themselves and will strive make your child feel comfortable. We ask that if your child is under the age of 14, you accompany them to all of their therapy sessions. Young children may need the reassurance and comfort of a parent’s presence during their treatment, and your child’s therapist will need to explain protocols with an adult to maximize healing time.
