What is physical therapy?

According to the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), licensed physical therapists are “movement experts” who specialize in hands-on care to help patients relieve pain, regain strength, and/or prevent injuries.

This makes it an important part of your child’s care plan, because it can improve their quality of life in specific ways. It can also make daily tasks easier for them in their own home!
