Physical Therapy for Kids

Children's Physical Therapy: How We Make It Fun

When your little one needs children's physical therapy, it's important to make the process fun. At Next Small Step, we work hard to make physical therapy for kids exciting, fun and age appropriate. We know that working on strength building and other movement and developmental issues can feel like a chore, but it's important to us that your little one sees coming to physical therapy as something they get to do, not something they have to do.

We get to know your child and their interests. As we talk with you about your child's likes and dislikes, we'll develop a plan that motivates them. Whether that means using games, rewards, or just talking with your child about books and movies that they love, we'll make it so that your child feels like family when they're with us. 

One way to ensure maximum success is to engage in physical therapy in a child's natural environment. This may be in your home, at the park, or at your child's favorite class. Alternatively, we offer telehealth, and we're able to do a great job of assessing your child and providing physical therapy from afar. We're able to work with you with the resources you have in your own home to help you carry out exercises and movements that can help your child gain their strength.

If you're ready to get started with children's physical therapy, we're here to help. Physical therapy for kids can be a great way to help your little one hit their milestones and maximize their participation in motor activities. Reach out to us today to schedule your first in-person or telehealth appointment.
