How Parents May Improve the Pediatric Physical Therapy Experience

Pediatric physical therapy is most often used to help young patients improve their strength, coordination, and more after an illness or an injury or because of a disability. Therapy may lead to a dramatic improvement on your child’s health and well-being, but the process may be difficult for kids in a number of ways. As a parent, here are some steps on how to make the process easier and more successful.

Many children may believe that therapy might make them instantly better, but the progress from therapy often is slow and steady.
