OTC's Physical Therapists (PTs) possess a wide range of experience and expertise in treating individuals of all ages, from the newborn to the very aged. Our PT's are specially trained in the evaluation and treatment of children with neuromuscular and sensorimotor problems, while also servicing and improving the health and well-being of the elderly.

Physical Therapy services are designed to promote strong gross motor and balance skills. OTC PT’s  are experts in the examination and treatment of neuromuscular and musculoskeletal problems that affect movement and function. Through therapeutic exercise and functional training they prevent the onset and/or slow the progression of conditions resulting from injury, disease, and other causes.

Our school based physical therapists consider walking; positioning; posture and other functional movement skills required in educational environments, at play including playground safety and participation in physical education class, and on the school bus. Range of motion; mobility; muscle strength; balance, coordination and sensorimotor performance are also measured. Our physical therapist is familiar with ambulation aids and equipment which will assist the students in being as independent as possible in their school environment. 

When working with children, the PT will use techniques such as sensory-motor activities, neurodevelopmental treatment (NDT), and/or manual techniques such as stretching in order to devise therapeutic activities that are fun and motivating to the child. Activities such as swings, steps, benches, balls, music, and other age appropriate games and manipulatives are used to engage children in play and motivate them to have fun and help their muscles get stronger.

Physical therapy services are also provided to individuals for back and neck injuries, sprains/strains and fractures, arthritis, stroke, osteoporosis, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, head injuries, balance impairments, and injuries related to daily activity, work and sports. Whatever the reason that you seek our therapists, they will help you to restore mobility and promote optimal function.
