Children who have difficulties with crawling, standing, walking, or balancing are evaluated and treated by our Physical Therapists and Physical Therapy Assistants specifically trained in pediatrics. This is done through a variety of hands-on techniques and other treatment modalities to address the skeletal, nervous, and muscular systems. Specific exercises and activities are incorporated into play in order to improve the child’s skills while making therapy FUN!
Using our spacious gym for therapeutic play we incorporate activities utilizing our rock wall, exercise balls, parallel bars, stairs, a WalkAble weightless gait trainer, climbing gym, I-Gallop and other tools. Our therapists use various exercises and activities to improve a child’s skills while also making therapy fun.
As an added service, Elevate offers custom foot orthotics created specifically for each child. Orthotics are orthopedic devices designed to support, align, prevent or correct various foot disorders. In addition, they can often improve standing, walking, and balancing abilities.
