How Akron Pediatric Physical Therapy is Different Than Adult PT

When it comes to the health and well-being of a child, it’s necessary to understand how their bodies are different from those of adults, and how our Akron pediatric physical therapy team at Therapy and Wellness Connection approach their treatment.

There are several different types of pediatric physical therapy, but one of the most common types is orthopedic physical therapy. This is the study and practice of correcting functional impairments of a child’s musculoskeletal system, which encompasses the:

  • Joints
  • Bones
  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Muscles
  • Nerves

Physical therapists in general specialize in providing services that can help a child restore function, relieve pain, improve movement and boost overall fitness and health. Bottom line: We don’t want anything holding them back in life.
