Pediatric physical therapy

Care for developmental and orthopedic conditions

Pediatric physical therapy

At RUSH Kids Pediatric Therapy, our focus is on your child. Our team of licensed physical therapists is dedicated to providing customized one-on-one care that helps children with developmental, neuromuscular and orthopedic conditions to restore and enhance their mobility and enable them to participate in desired family, community and school-based activities.

Our clinicians utilize therapies in a play-based environment that help children increase their strength, balance, coordination and motor skills.

Our physical therapy program can benefit children with conditions including:

  • Brain trauma and injuries
  • Cerebral palsy — a disorder affecting a child’s muscle tone, movement or posture
  • Developmental delays
  • General orthopedic — injuries to the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles
  • Genetic syndromes — Down syndrome (which can cause developmental and intellectual delays) and muscular dystrophy (which can impact muscle mass and strength)
  • Gross motor skills — deficits including muscle strength, coordination and balance
  • Headaches
  • Hypertonia or hypotonia — abnormally high or weak muscle tone, respectively
  • Post-concussion symptoms — headaches, dizziness and ringing in the ears
  • Post-fracture care
  • Spina bifida — a birth defect affecting the spinal cord
  • Sports-related pain or poor posture
  • Sprains and strains
  • Torticollis — a condition causing the head to twist to one side
