Physical Therapy for Kids
Pediatric Physical Therapy at Infinity Kids
Infinity Kids Physical Therapists assess how children move, looking specifically at their flexibility, strength, balance, and coordination. A pediatric physical therapist is trained in the evaluation and treatment of motor dysfunction, along with neurological and/or genetic disorders. A child may get referred to physical therapy if they exhibit abnormal muscle tone, poor posture, inefficient walking, jumping or running patterns. Pediatric physical therapists also work with babies who have torticollis and plagiocephaly (asymmetrical head/neck positioning and skull shape).
Key Areas we address:
- Crawling patterns
- Flat feet
- Muscle tightness or weakness
- Joint stability
- Musculoskeletal injury (surgery, fractures)
- Orthotics/bracing referrals
The Benefits of Physical Therapy for Kids:
- Improved motor skills to properly, safely, and successfully thrive.
- The learning process is rewarding and empowering for both children and their families.
- Sessions are play-based so that the child is intrinsically motivated to participate in more physically challenging activities.
Why Pediatric Physical Therapy?
Common motor developmental delays include rolling, sitting, crawling, standing and walking. Infinity Kids specializes in early intervention of these milestones and encourages families to obtain a consult or evaluation when first signs of delays are recognized. If the aforementioned areas are overlooked, inefficient movement patterns involving compensatory muscle use can develop, affecting a child’s skills and agility in the future.
More than 1 million new neural connections are formed every second in the first few years of life, coming from a child’s environment and experiences.
