Pediatrics Therapy

As pediatric physical therapists, we know the intense bliss of helping children and their families attain greater joy under difficult circumstances. We have a burning desire and aptitude for working with children who have special needs. We work tirelessly to help each child achieve and improve mobility and their quality of life by making the most of his or her potential to function independently. As primary care providers, we work with parents and children to examine the source of children’s movement difficulties. Once we have all the vital information, we use our expertise to design a suitable plan of care. Each therapy treatment is uniquely created for each child. We find inspiration, challenges and grand reward as we work to support and promote children’s independence and integration at home, in school and in society.

With our team of highly skilled and highly trained physical therapists, we help children develop and improve motor skills, coordination skills and build strength. In addition, we administer treatment in creative and fun ways as play is an important aspect in the development of any child. Through play, children are fully involved and motivated. However, the therapy program is individualized in order to ensure that our services are patient-centered. We provide services to children of all ages, from infants through the teenagers. In addition, we teach our patients to understand their diagnosis how to manage their day to day care, enabling them to achieve lasting health benefits. We also work hand in hand with our patients in order to prevent loss of mobility before it occurs through creating wellness and fitness programs for better living and healthiness. Our goal is to promote mobility, lessen pain, and restore function as well as preventing disability.

  • Balance and coordination skills

What our patients say

I have been coming to RT Physical Therapy & Rehab for over a year and highly recommend this office!!! On 3 separate occasions, during the year, I came to be treated for neck injury, heel spur and vertigo/dizziness. Each time Reuven & his staff have taken great care of me and have shown me exercises to do when I'm home to minimize pain and/or to eventually fix my problem.

I came to RT for physical therapy with a horrible pain in my neck that radiated all the way down my arm. Couldn't drive or do anything. After only 3 sessions Reuven transformed me back to my active self. Highly recommend this office!! Staff is also super professional!!!

I went to Reuven for knee pain. I have never met a more caring and dedicating health care provider in my life! He knew exactly what I had to do to reduce the pain in my knee and helped me get back to playing sports without pain. The whole staff was very nice and helpful. I would 100% return here the next time I need physical therapy.
