Pediatric physical therapy is a specialized therapeutic treatment which focuses on improving the body’s ability to move, allowing infants, children, and young adults to learn new skills through movement.
Our physical therapists understand that each person is unique and not everyone fits into a specific therapy model, so by developing a specialized treatment plan we are able to provide the most effective intervention.
Our physical therapists are licensed in Oregon and highly trained to assess and provide treatment to children from birth to young adults.
The goal is to provide each client with the skills to achieve and sustain their highest level of independence.
We do this by addressing:
