Pediatric Physical Therapy
Pediatric physical therapy includes evaluations and treatment specializing in developmental, neuromuscular, and orthopedic impairments. Gross motor skills are important for your child’s development, including social and emotional skills. Our pediatric physical therapists are experts with helping children build mobility, coordination, balance, and strength to enable them to interact and participate with their environment and in desired age-appropriate family and community activities.
Mariposa specializes in pediatric physical therapy rehabilitation from infancy through adolescence. Our pediatric team is trained in how to use creative activities and guided play on equipment to infuse fun to make the child’s potential possible. Our therapists create a tailor-made home program full of activities, ideas, and support equipment so that your child makes developmental gains beyond the therapy session.

If you think your child might benefit from pediatric physical therapy, please contact us to schedule an assessment. A pediatric physical therapy evaluation will identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses. The evaluation uses standardized testing, informal clinical observations, parent input, and physician information to determine the next steps.
