Pediatric Physical Therapy

 

ASTR's Pediatric Physical Therapy program assists early detection and health issues in the pediatric population.  We treat infants, children, and adolescents with congenital, developmental, neuromuscular, skeletal disorders and diseases. We help patients work on strengthening their muscles, coordination, locomotion, balance, flexibility, and walking, so that they can become more independent. ASTR's licensed therapists help patients’ improve motor skills and positioning, in order to increase mobility. ASTR's Pediatric Physical Therapists work with patients and collaborate with their parents to create an individualized program so that they can reach their body’s full potential!
