October is National Physical Therapy Month! What better time to talk about what physical therapists do, specifically pediatric physical therapists!
Our job is to work with babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kids, teens, and young adults to reach their maximum potential to function independently. We are the movement experts of the health profession. That’s it! For some kids, that may mean strengthening, stretching, working on balance and coordination, pain management, and ordering and utilizing adaptive equipment.
Has your child had an injury during a sport or undergone a recent surgery?
Does your child fall often or seem uncoordinated and off balance?
Does your child often complain of pain in the same body part?
Has your child been diagnosed with a neuromuscular disorder?
Is your child developmentally delayed (more on this in a few weeks)?
If any of these sound like your child, contact Aspire for an evaluation today and let’s improve your child’s quality of life!
