Pediatric Physical Therapy (PT)

THERAPY 2000 provides the highest quality pediatric physical therapy to the  children of Texas.

Pediatric physical therapy promotes independence in a child by working on muscle strength, coordination and walking. Positioning and motor skills are also addressed to improve mobility in a variety of settings. THERAPY 2000’s highly trained pediatric physical therapists work with the child and collaborate with the family to implement an individualized pediatric physical therapy program to help the patient reach his/her full potential. Pediatric physical therapy helps increase a child’s participation in routine daily activities, by helping children work on strengthening, balance, and coordination, along with positioning, gross motor skills, transfers, mobility, locomotor skills (running, hopping, skipping, jumping), ball skills, and other motor skills. All of these skills are necessary to improve function and enhance participation in a variety of settings including;  home, school, social settings, play settings, leisure activities. There are many areas  a pediatric physical therapist might work on with a child and family. Parent Involvement – Instructing the parent/caregiver on the best ways to help the child.  Positioning – Providing a variety of positions to promote correct body alignment and allow for functional activities.  Increasing movement and flexibility to allow variety of positions and movement options.  Strengthening – Provide strengthening activities to promote independence in a variety of developmental skills (rolling, sitting standing, crawling, walking, etc.) Transfers/Transitional Movements- assisting/teaching the child to move from one position to another independently and safely (lying to sitting, sitting to standing, standing to sitting). Mobility Assistance – teaching the child to move from one area to another (rolling, crawling, walking). Equipment Assistance- helping the family with ordering appropriate equipment for the child. A pediatric physical  therapist is a vital part of the medical team necessary for the rehabilitation of patients to their fullest potential. Pediatric therapy evaluation and treatment requires a prescription from the physician.
