Physical Therapy helps children to develop coordination, build strength, improve balance, maintain flexibility, optimize physical functioning levels and maximize independence, in order to promote an active participation at home or any other natural environment.
At ECIL, we aim to provide high-quality physical therapy service for children with disabilities based on research, education and information built on a scientific evidence-based practice, as well as, to provide opportunities to engage in different models of service delivery in pediatric physical therapy. We also provide parents with practical home exercises, since improving physical function often requires daily practice.
The physical therapist works collaboratively as a member of a team, with the common goal, of enhancing the child’s development and supporting the family, by delivering effective services. The role of the physical therapist in team approach includes coordination, communication and documentation, and patient related instruction.
