At POTS our physical therapists’ goal is to help children maximize their physical abilities and minimize the physical limitations that accompany some developmental challenges. They use their experience and extensive training in pediatric health, including anatomy and physiology, psychology and child development to assist children to uncover their potential and reach their peak performance. In addition to top-notch intervention, our PTs are here to answer your questions, offer support and provide you with ideas and suggestions for home to make life easier and support your child’s therapeutic goals.

Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT) is a hands-on treatment approach used by physical and occupational therapists to enhance the function of children who have difficulty controlling movement as a result of neurological challenges. During treatment sessions children are exposed to an ever-expanding range of movement experiences to help them meet their developmental motor milestones. Direct handling, positioning and guidance of the child's movements are used to optimize function.
Torticollis is the tilt and/or rotation of the head to one side because of tight and weak neck muscles. It occurs when the muscle that runs up and towards the back of the neck (the sternocleidomastoid muscle) becomes tight, weakened, or thickened. The most common form of this condition affects infants and is generally diagnosed within the first 2 months of life.
