The Children’s Clinic at Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine
Every year across the United States, thousands of parents seek out the help of a physical therapist for their children. They may be faced with some kind of challenge in their child’s physical development, or they could be looking for ways to properly heal some type of sports injury that their child has sustained. Whatever the case may be, a pediatric physical therapist can help to diagnose, treat and manage many childhood disabilities, disorders and injuries. At Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine in Fayetteville, North Carolina, our children’s clinic is staffed by highly professional and well trained physical therapists who make the well being and healing of children their primary mission.
When your child is treated by a pediatric physical therapist, you will probably notice that the methods of physical therapy differ from adult physical therapy. As a pediatric physical therapist, there are unique challenges that come with treating children. The physical therapists in our children’s clinic understand that in order to help your child heal well, we need to get on their level. Many children may not understand why they are in physical therapy, so we make it our goal to make physical therapy interesting and engaging for them, and sometimes even a little fun. Our pediatric physical therapists are trained to speak the language of children from ages 0-18. Their therapy will most likely involve games, rehabilitation toys and equipment, and a well thought out plan for home treatment that involves age appropriate activities and guidelines for you as the parent.
The physical therapists in the children’s clinic of Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine see children with numerous conditions.
