Physical Therapy

Physical therapy (PT) can help children develop motor skills to allow them to reach their greatest functioning potential. A child's number one job is to play. Their ability to play with peers requires motor development, strength, balance, coordination, and endurance. Pediatric physical therapy at The Kid Spot Center is designed specifically to meet children's unique needs. Our age-appropriate equipment and resources allow for the most effective therapy.
