Pediatric Physical Therapy: Creative Techniques and Using Innovative Technology for Pencil Grasp Patterns


Pediatric physical therapy is aimed at helping children reach their maximum potential to function independently. By extension, it seeks to promote active participation for a child in environments such as at home or in school. The focus of this type of physical therapy is to facilitate motor development and function and improve strength and endurance while also enhancing learning opportunities for the child.

Each approach to pediatric physical therapy varies and depends on the need of each child. For instance, treatment for children who have difficulty with movement and mobility will be geared towards improving range of motion. Physical therapists in Houston or anywhere else may start with something as simple as helping as teaching a child to grasp a pencil.
