Physical Therapy

Moving safely and independently gives children the freedom to explore and experience their world. The Physical Therapists at PDC embrace a holistic therapeutic approach by coordinating services with medical caregivers and the medical/professional teams to improve how children function in every environment.

  • Overall strength and endurance
  • Balance
  • Coordination
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Gross motor skills

"We have a wonderful physical therapist working with my son. During sessions, she helps him with strategies to improve muscle tone in his legs. The skills he has learned so far have helped him be safe in activities he loves doing on a regular basis. I cannot say enough about the center. PDC has been a godsend, not only by helping my son, but teaching me how to follow through exercises at home and develop a routine to encourage and build his confidence. Thank you PDC!"
