FAQ: What makes a Pediatric Physical Therapist different from another Physical Therapist?

Because a Pediatric Physical Therapist specializes in children, there are significant differences in the approach to care.  Children require specialized care, care a pediatric therapist is trained to deliver.  Most adults who work with Physical Therapists understand that their recovery is a process that may involve some discomfort and patience to achieve the desired outcome.  Children need different motivators to encourage a positive outcome.  Pediatric therapy involves fun and playful therapeutic interventions and activities to allow children to maximize their functional independence within their environment.  A skilled Pediatric Physical Therapist will also work with parents and guardians to help them assist their child through the recovery and encourage a positive environment for all parties involved.
