The Talented Professionals at Physical Therapy 4 Kids Specialize in Treatment of Torticollis – Pediatric Physical Therapy Westchester
Regardless of when a parent hears this news, being told that your child may need physical therapy could be a very confusing and upsetting time in one’s life. By giving Physical Therapy 4 Kids a chance, you have come to the right place to gain clarity, comfort and physical/emotional improvement through professional interactive physical therapy.
First, one must assess what kind of impairment the patient is needing help with, and then evaluations will occur. These are used to properly assess where the child is excelling and what areas need work. After this, the child will be given a blueprint in regards to what physical therapy plan is best for them. Physical Therapy 4 Kids offers a large variety of services for children of all ages. Our physical therapist is a huge proponent on engaging children in a comfortable, friendly, and playful atmosphere that promotes strengths and improvements in coordination, mobility, communication, sensory processing, and socio-emotional development. The specialized solutions include neurodevelopmental treatment techniques, walk training, pre and post orthopedic surgical care, and also comprehensive home exercise programs for the patient to continue their healing and improvements at home. We offer parent training to help parents feel comfortable with any equipment, exercises, and/or techniques that are recommended for your child’s personalized therapy.
