Pediatric physical therapy for infants, children and teens.

Treatments designed especially for the needs of children

At Fort Lee Physical Therapy, our pediatric physical therapists help infants, children and teens to develop, regain and improve their ability to move. Depending on the age of the child, or the child's physical limitations, moving may be learning how to roll or to sit on his/her own. Physical therapists assess the following skills and areas:

  • Muscle strength
  • Range of motion
  • Movement
  • Balance
  • Motor skills
  • Comfort
  • Pain

A pediatric physical therapy treatment program is made specifically for each child using fun and educational activities. The child may need one-on-one sessions with a physical therapist, a home exercise program, special equipment to move, help managing care with other therapists and teachers and splints or casts to hold an arm or leg. Pediatric physical therapists at Fort Lee PT use special equipment made just for children along with toys and play in order to encourage children to do their best in therapy.
