What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is a form of treatment that focuses mainly on relieving pain, restoring function and movement, promoting healing and adaption of the body in regards to injury or disability. Pediatric physical therapy can help children with their motor skills as well as aiding their overall development. There are many treatment interventions that are used including therapeutic exercise, balance and coordination activities, mobility training and developmental activities.
Here at Oahu Spine and Rehab, we offer physical therapy right here in Kailua for your family’s needs. Our physical therapists can help your children reach their full potential in their motor skills. If a child’s functional mobility skills are low for their age/size, their pediatrician may refer you to our office in to have our physical therapists work with your child.
With our integrated health center, you will first meet with our medical staff to get your plan of care with the physical therapy department. As a whole, we can help your child with things like motor learning, developmental activities, balance and coordination, posture, positioning and lifting, strengthening, tone management, and orthotics and prosthetics.
Our physical therapists work closely with our entire team of healthcare professionals to ensure that your child’s comprehensive treatment plan relieves pain, corrects the problem, strengthens your body, and maintains your wellness. Call us today to schedule a consultation to help your children hit their developmental goals!
