Physical Therapy

Physical Therapists (PT) help clients to develop strength and coordination that will lead to success in motor skills. A PT is professionally trained in biological, physical and medical sciences. They are required to complete clinical roatinos, pass licensing exams and must be licensed to practice in Texas. Continued education is required annually and pediatrics is a specialty field of physical therapy.

How can a Physical Therapist Help?

Our physical therapists evaluate and treat children with or at risk of movement dysfunction.  Your child might need physical therapy to help with a variant of congenital, developmental, or neuromuscular disorders and diseases.

Our physical therapists help children develop the strength and range of motion needed to move through their environments easily and effectively.   Physical therapy goals often included reaching age-appropriate developmental milestones like sitting, crawling, walking and running.  PT’s also assess the need for adaptive equipment and/or orthotics.

At Aspire our highly trained physical therapists evaluate and treate children from birth to 18 years of age with a variety of diagnosis that may include

  • Uppera and lower extremity injuries and/or fractures
  • Developmental disabilities
  • Torticollis, hip dysplasia and other orthopedic diagnoses
  • Down syndrome and other genetic diagnoses
  • Cerebral Palsy and other neurological diagnoses

Our physical therapists not only work directly with the child, but also with the family, parents, caregivers, and teachers. Working with the entire support group is imperative to reinforce specific skills and behaviors needed to improve the childs performance and functioning.
