Pediatric Physical & Pelvic Therapy
Kids have fun at Sutton Place Physical and Aquatic Therapy!
From orthopedic to pelvic floor dysfunction, our pediatric physical therapy (PT) program is specifically designed for kids and teens who cannot move with ease, whether it’s the result of injury, disease, or disability.
In the privacy of our offices, we offer kids and teens a customized PT program which includes Balance Training, Bikes, Biofeedback for Muscle Re-education, Manual Therapy, Paraffin, Strength Training, Treadmill, TRX, Pilates and our extremely popular comprehensive aquatics therapy in our own private pool.
Although millions of children suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction, most don't receive the correct treatment. Typically, children are toilet trained by age 4. After age 4, bowel and bladder dysfunction is considered a major medical issue that affects the family unit.
Our highly trained physical therapists have extensive experience working with kids and teens in land, pelvic floor and aquatics PT. During each session, your child or teen will work exclusively with one of our physical therapists to help build strength, improve movement, and strengthen the skills and confidence needed to complete daily activities. Also, our physical therapists can help identify existing and potential problems, consult with medical, psychiatric, and school personnel about an individual education plan (IEP), provide instructions for home exercise programs and of course recommend when returning to sports is safe.
