Functional mobility is the goal of pediatric Physical Therapy. Treatment may be focused on improving developmental tasks, motor planning, balance, safety and general and eye-hand coordination.
Highly trained Physical Therapists focus on muscle tone, strength, endurance, coordination, balance, body awareness, playground skills, learning new motor tasks, ability to engage in sports and at the earlier ages achievement of motor milestones (i.e. rolling, crawling, walking, etc.).
