Physical Therapy – Beyond Therapy

Beyond Therapy Logo - Ridgeland, MS Pediatric Physical Therapy

As physical therapists specializing in pediatrics, we assist children in developing independence to participate in home, community, classroom and playground activities. We are concerned with children’s ability to take part in important movement activities such as crawling and walking, running, playing games, participating in sports, and in other important physical interactions with the world around them. Our physical therapists provide evaluation, intervention and consultation in the following areas:

  • Gross Motor Development
  • Muscle Tone & Strength
  • Posture & Postural Control
  • Pre-Gait & Gait Training
  • Locomotion Patterns
  • Neuromuscular Function
  • Endurance
  • Musculo-Skeletal Conditions
  • Body Alignment
  • Environmental Adaptations & Seating & Positioning
  • Sports/Dance Prep or Enhancement
  • Wellness & Healthy Lifestyle

Through play, pediatric physical therapists incorporate many intervention approaches such as: neurodevelopmental treatment, motor learning and motor control, strengthening and endurance training, balance and coordination to enhance the child’s capabilities and prevent deformities.
