Pediatric Physical Therapists, Abbey Bond, PT, DPT, and Zach Sutton, PT, DPT, CHT, ATC are trained to observe and evaluate a child’s mobility and gross motor skills. Our goal at McMinnville Physical Therapy is to help children reach their maximum potential of functioning independently through development of gross motor skills. Pediatric physical therapy patients can range from infants through maturity.
Our pediatric therapists work with children and their families to promote participation in daily activities and routines that gross motor delays have hindered them from being a part of. We work with children to assist them with rolling over, sitting up, standing, walking, and many more gross motor skills. We utilize play through therapy to encourage and motivate children to participate in functional activities that can improve their flexibility, strength, posture, gait, sensory processing, balance, coordination and motor skill set.
Pediatric disorders PT can address:
Pediatric Pathologies such as Cerebral Palsy and Down’s Syndrome
Plagiocephaly and Torticollis
Prior to receiving her Doctor of Physical Therapy, Abbey worked at a specialized pediatric PT facility and had a clinical rotation while attending school with a pediatric PT facility. In addition to clinical patient care, Abbey is the Physical Therapist for Warren County Special Education.
Abbey’s mission is to promote the highest quality of life for children, people with developmental disabilities, and their families using evidence-based practice.
