At Wiles Therapy for Kids, pediatric physical therapists (PTs) provide physical therapy to children ages birth to 21 and their families to assist each child to reach their maximum potential and to function independently. We work to promote active participation in their home, school, and community environments.
Physical therapists have expertise in movement, motor development including motor planing, sequencing, coordination, normalization of abnormal movement patterns, as well as body function such as strength and endurance. They apply clinical reasoning during examination, evaluation, diagnosis, and intervention for children, youth, and young adults. Pediatric physical therapists provide health and wellness as they implement a wide variety of supports and collaboration with OT, ST, doctors, and other medical professionals.
Our PTs are trained in using our Universal Exercise Unit (UEU) in our physical therapy sessions. The UEU uses pulleys, weights, and bungee cords to help children improve muscles strength, range of motion, and normalize muscle tone.
