Additionally, our physical therapists go above and beyond by:

  1. Physical therapists are able to make recommendations on appropriate baby equipment for all facets of your infant’s motor development.

  2. Physical therapists work with specialists on the rehabilitation team such as the primary care physician, physiatrist, orthotist, orthopedist, occupational therapist and social worker, who make recommendations for durable medical equipment (DME) that may be an intervention that will enhance optimal motor development in the upright position.

  3. Physical therapists make wheelchair/special equipment recommendations and work with certified pediatric vendors and insurers for these DME for use in the home, school and community.

  4. Physical therapists evaluate and treat infants, toddlers, children and adolescents with all types of movement disorders, muscle imbalances, range of motion limitations, strength and endurance issues, and postural mal-alignments
