If you think your child may benefit from physical therapy, contact Child’sPlay Therapy center for a free Physical Therapy phone consultation with no obligation. If after discussing your concerns a physical therapy evaluation is recommended, we will set your child up with an appointment that fits your scheduling needs.

At the evaluation our physical therapist will use standardize tests to see where your child is functioning compared to his age matched peers and develop a therapy program customized to your child’s needs that fits your schedule.

We apply a “partnering” approach in our therapy services: working closely with you, your child and your family to get the physical therapy results that matter most to you and your child.
