Pediatric Physical Therapy in Houston, TX and Beyond
Exceptional In-Home Physical Therapy from Daisy Kids Care
Daisy Kids Care has worked with numerous children and families to develop pediatric physical therapy strategies. In our years of experience, we’ve realized the need for in-home physical therapy. Often, children are afraid of a new environment, or parents don’t have the transportation capabilities to take their children to regular appointments. To meet this need, our physical therapists offer in-home visits where we’ll evaluate your child’s condition and get started taking steps to improve it. We make house calls throughout the Greater Houston Area, including Tomball, Cypress, Katy, Spring, Magnolia, Humble, Conroe, Sugarland, and The Woodlands. Call us today to learn more about our home care services.
Physical Therapy Makes Movement Easier for Children
Pediatric physical therapy focuses on treating children with problems moving and completing everyday tasks. Physical therapists address issues arising from injuries, as well as illnesses and health conditions present from birth. During typical in-home physical therapy visits, the team from Daisy Kids Care works to improve mobility, strength, and flexibility, focusing specifically on problem areas. The goal of physical therapy for children is simple: to make life as easy and painless as possible.
What Conditions Can Pediatric Physical Therapy Improve?
We use pediatric therapy methods to address a wide range of conditions. Some children experience a traumatic injury, leaving them with weakened muscles or less mobility. Physical therapy for kids is designed to make movement easier for these children, as well as those struggling with specific illnesses or childhood disorders. Daisy Kids Care has worked with Houston families dealing with the following conditions and more:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Down Syndrome
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Cystic Fibrosis
Look for Warning Signs of Development Delay
Although many of the conditions physical therapy addresses are evident from birth, you may not always notice your child needs treatment. Fortunately, the physical therapists at Daisy Kids Care know what to look for when it comes to determining if treatment would improve a child’s condition. We’ll visit your Houston, TX home and look for the following warning signs:
- Muscle weakness
- Poor coordination or imbalance
- Difficulty using a pencil and other fine motor skills
- Poor posture when sitting
- Inability to crawl by 12 months
- Inability to walk by 18 months
- Other developmental delays
Perhaps the clearest sign your child may need physical therapy is a delay in their ability to begin walking. By 18 months, your child should begin taking their first steps. Some children learn to walk by first walking on their tiptoes. This is normal for the first few months of learning to walk, but if this lasts more than six months. Children older than four years who can’t climb stairs or keep up with other children their age may also need pediatric physical therapy. If you notice these instances or have further questions, please call your Houston physical therapists at Daisy Kids Care.
