Benefits of Physical Therapy for Kids

Princeton Online article

Having a physical therapist as a part of the team providing treatment to children is extremely valuable. Their input into the care of the child provides valuable insights into what the long term outlooks are, and how parents themselves can work with their children to help in treatment and rehabilitation. Physical therapists provide a roadmap that helps parents to promote their child's independence along with enhancing their motor ability and function. This overall care allows the parents to be actively involved, with the additional benefit of increasing the confidence of the child to try more activities. Parents also more assured that the care provided is improving their child's overall health.

What are the goals of pediatric physical therapists?

They are committed to ensuring the holistic development of the child by improving motor function and coordination, increasing confidence and promoting independence on the part of the child. They collaborate with parents, physicians, other healthcare providers and child-centric organizations to ensure that the care and treatment provided is consistently delivered to the child.

After all, every child deserves to be independent and have the ability to pursue and achieve their dreams. Pediatric physical therapists help achieve that goal.
