Physical Therapy

Our team of licensed Physical Therapists work with children and their families to improve movement and mobility through individualized treatment plans.

At SPOT On Therapy for Kids, Pediatric physical therapists (PTs) work with children (ages birth to 21) and their families to assist each child in reaching their maximum potential to function independently and to promote active participation in home, school, and community environments.

Physical therapists have expertise in movement, motor development (motor planning, sequencing, coordination, and normalization of abnormal movement patterns), and body function (eg, strength and endurance). They apply clinical reasoning during examination, evaluation, diagnosis, and intervention for children, youth, and young adults. As primary health care providers, PTs also promote health and wellness as they implement a wide variety of supports in collaboration with families, communities, and other medical, educational, developmental, and rehabilitation specialists.
