Understanding how a child’s motor performance develops, and how it is related to the child’s cognitive development, is the basis of pediatric physical therapy (PT).
At Cincinnati Children’s, our physical therapists work to minimize the effect that injuries, disease or developmental disabilities have on a child’s ability to function. Our team’s goal is to help every child, adolescent and young adult reach his or her full potential.
For children who face physical challenges, long-term disabilities or injuries, physical therapy offers an opportunity for life-changing progress. Our therapists are specially trained and skilled in working with children who face sports injuries, developmental delays and a host of conditions that can affect a child’s ability to complete daily tasks.
Our therapists use positive approaches, age-appropriate activities and cutting-edge techniques to improve a child’s motor skills, balance and coordination, and strength and endurance.

Our physical therapists collaborate with occupational therapists, physicians and other specialists to maximize your child’s potential with specific programs customized to address his unique needs.
Guidelines for determining frequency of therapy service are used to help decide how often and for how long your child could benefit from therapy. We believe in ongoing communication with a child’s family, physicians and teachers to ensure appropriate treatment. Our therapists will work with you to develop the most appropriate and effective plan of care. From the day your child enters therapy, our primary goal is to help your entire family develop the skills and knowledge to help your child continue to thrive after the course of treatment ends.
We create customized treatment plans for each patient we see.
