October is Physical Therapy Month, which gives Kids for the Future the opportunity to celebrate and recognize the 18 physical therapists and physical therapy assistants who work across 5 Kids for the Future locations throughout eastern Arkansas. These specially trained professionals make up part of the multidisciplinary team that makes Kids for the Future unique. For over 20 years, Kids for the Future has offered physical therapy evaluations, individualized treatment planning, individual and group therapies for children with developmental delays, birth to 5 years old.
Pediatric physical therapy helps develop the strength and range of motion children need to move through their environment easily and effectively. Physical therapy goals often include help with developmental milestones like sitting, standing, crawling, and walking. Our licensed physical therapists also assess the need for orthotics (like splints and braces) and recommend adaptive equipment.
In young children, early treatment can help prevent them from falling behind academically, socially, and in other key areas at a critical time in their development.
The goal of the month long celebration is to raise awareness of the important role that physical therapists and physical therapy assistants play in helping children and adolescents improve mobility and engage in health lifestyles.
Please join us in thanking and celebrating all of our physical therapists and physical therapy assistants for their commitment and dedication to the children, families, and communities we serve.
