Physical Therapy

Our pediatric physical therapists are committed to helping your child enhance mobility in order to participate in the daily activities of their home, school and community.

We work with children using therapeutic exercise techniques to: 

  • increase strength and endurance

  • improve balance and coordination

  • improve joint range of motion

  • increase efficiency and function.

With an individualized treatment plan, physical therapy can aid in many different kinds of desired functions, whether related to developmental activities or specific activities of daily living.  Often times school systems only address physical therapy as it relates to a child's education.  Treatment teams at High Hopes work with parents to meet their desired goals for educational development as well as for the home and community environments.

Specialized treatment is offered in the following areas:

  • Exercise for strengthening, range of motion, balance, coordination, and endurance

  • Developmental activities

  • Joint mobilization

  • Neuromuscular electrical stimulation

  • Serial Casting

  • Post-operative therapies

  • Equipment evaluations (wheelchairs, standers, walkers, etc.)

  • Orthotic evaluations and coordination (AFOs, SMOs, inserts, etc.)
