At Children’s, our approach to pediatric physical therapy is one in which the patient, parents, family and professionals all focus on mutually agreed-upon goals. That’s what makes our physical therapists so effective at helping children, adolescents and young adults achieve optimal independence and adequate functioning at home, school and in the community.
