Pediatric Physical Therapy Baton Rouge, Denham Springs, Gonzales & Surrounding Cities
From elementary school to high school, kids of all ages go through extensive physical changes! On top of the strain of normal growth and development, constant sports and activities can overload young bodies and make kids prone to a variety of injuries. Whether a child has a sports related injury, a developmental condition, or is recovering from a broken bone, a physical therapist can help with it all! When a child is injured, it is critically important that they receive appropriate medical care and rehabilitation in order to prevent reinjury or even lifelong impairments. Physical therapy for kids is a great way to make sure your child recovers completely, stays on track with development, and can even give them a competitive edge in sports!
What is a Pediatric Physical Therapist?
Seeing a Pediatric physical therapist for kids is similar to physical therapy for adults - with a few important differences. Throughout development our bones, muscles, and ligaments go through rapid changes, so your child’s physical therapist will take this into account. Some conditions are specific to children, whether they are congenital or the result of injury or overuse. A pediatric physical therapist will have extensive experience in treating a variety of pediatric conditions so that you know your child is receiving optimal care, unique to their body and their needs.

Here's what some of our patients had to say
My pain was so bad it was impacting my running and making my training very difficult and painful. With their help I was able to achieve my goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon! I am so thankful to all the staff for all they did for me and making me feel like I was…
This place is amazing. The people are outstanding. I love the way they explain what to do and why and will remind you when you forget. They are kind and realize you may be hurting. They are always timely and friendly. I thank all of you.
Best place ever. I had at least 4 separate injuries/surgeries where I needed therapy for my knee and back. Each time Tyler, Seth and crew got me back on track. You can’t beat their personal attention to your specific needs.
