Pediatric Physical Therapy

Basal physical therapist teaching children how use the stairs

Unlike occupational therapy that focuses on fine motor skills your child uses to perform the more precise activities of daily life, pediatric physical therapy here in the Frederick, MD area addresses gross motor, or total body, movements.

Pediatric physical therapy is used to address many childhood needs including:

  • Injuries
  • Disability
  • Chronic illness
  • Muscle issues
  • Balance and coordination issues
  • Delayed gross motor skill development
  • Other diagnosed conditions

The goal of Basal Therapies’ pediatric physical therapy is to assess every child through a comprehensive, industry-standardized evaluation that seeks to uncover the underlying causes of pain, limited mobility, and delayed developmental milestones. Once our skilled therapists evaluate the “big picture,” they can create holistic treatment plans rooted in an evidence-based approach.
