What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy (PT) services are directed at improving a child’s ability to move, participating in daily activities, and functioning safely in their everyday routines. Physical Therapist’s have an extensive background in anatomy and physiology, neurology, and motor development. They can evaluate and assess skills such as balance, strength, range of motion, postural control, muscle tone, motor coordination, movement patterns, and endurance. Our Physical Therapists utilize a variety of treatment techniques and equipment in a safe and fun environment to achieve age appropriate functional goals.
At STARS Pediatric Therapy, we believe every child shines and has potential to play, move, learn, and develop into a happy and functional individual. We provide children, newborn to age 12 years, with quality therapy programs addressing each child’s individual needs. Our licensed pediatric therapists assist with the diagnosis, treatment and management of a variety of congenital, developmental, learning challenged, neuromuscular skeletal or acquired disorders.
