What I Want To Be

Physical Therapist

Some Physical Therapists work with kids and teens who have been injured or who have movement problems from an illness, disease or disability. After an injury, physical therapists work to decrease pain and help kids return to daily activities. They teach exercises designed to help regain strength and range of motion.

Physical Therapy is often recommended for kids with sports injuries, developmental delays, cerebral palsy, genetic disorders, orthopedic disabilities/injuries, heart and lung conditions, birth defects, acute trauma, head injury, muscle diseases to name a few. They use a variety of treatments to help build strength, improve movement and strengthen skills needed to complete daily activities.
