One of the main differences between pediatric and adult therapies is play. Pediatric physical therapists at The Children's Hospital at Saint Peter's University Hospitalt use play activities to engage young patients and help them achieve their highest functional level. Children—and their parents—can relax and have fun as the child learn and develop physical skills.
In addition to “playing” with outpatients, our pediatric physical therapist treats inpatients in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and our Pediatric Unit. Our therapist helps premature infants with feeding therapy, therapeutic handling and developmental stimulation. She also teaches parents how to continue their child's care at home and help their child develop further.
Pediatric physical therapy is part of a wide array of children's services available at Saint Peter's. The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department also offers audiology services for hearing tests as well as speech services for diagnostic tests and speech therapy for children.
Call (732) 745-8570 for information or to make a physical therapy appointment for your child, newborn through age 16. You'll need a prescription from your physician for pediatric physical therapy.
