Pediatric physical therapy is a very special type of practice. Depending upon the needs of the child, work can be done to help with improving mobility, independence with certain tasks, general coordination, endurance, sensory and perceptual integration, or rehabilitation following an injury or surgery.   Pediatric physical therapy can be beneficial for children of all ages who have been identified to have deficits that interfere with their ability to function normally in their home or school environment.  Working this closely with children and their families requires patience, dedication, specialized knowledge and excellent communication.  Considering the needs of both the child and the family is paramount to meeting set goals and expectations.  Carrie has worked extensively in outpatient pediatrics treating such diagnoses as:   Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, post-surgery orthopedic rehab, Autism-spectrum and Asperger’s syndrome, Spina Bifida, Down’s syndrome, Sensory Processing Disorder, Costello’s syndrome, post-cancer rehabilitation, Torticollis and many others.  Carrie considers it one of the highest privileges of her practice to work with children and their families.
