Pediatric physical therapists are trained and licensed health care professionals who evaluate and treat children with physical impairments, disabilities and functional limitations resulting from injury or disease.

A pediatric physical therapist works with a child’s family, in order to empower the family with the ability to maximize the child’s function at home, at school and in the community.
