Physical Therapy

Utilizing our dedicated therapy gym, Bridgeway Academy’s licensed physical therapists and physical therapy assistants are committed to providing the most current, evidence-based physical therapy practices to assess strength, range of motion, posture, gait, stair skills, balance, coordination, endurance, and ball skills. This assessment helps to determine any functional limitations that may lead to deficits in functional mobility and functional activities limiting participation in the child’s natural environment. Our physical therapists provide services to patients with diagnoses that include: autism, PDD-NOS, ADHD, apraxia, ataxia, autoimmune disorder, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, Dravet syndrome, congenital shortened femur, 5p minus (Cri du Chat), dyspraxia, FG syndrome, fragile X syndrome, microcephaly, mitochondrial disease, peripheral neuropathy, sensory processing disorder, traumatic brain injury, tuberous sclerosis, and Williams syndrome. Treatment programs can include: therapeutic exercise, therapeutic activity, gait/running/stair training, balance training, neuromuscular re-education, aerobic conditioning, stretching, and orthotic recommendations. Treatment sessions consist of play-based interventions that are functional for the child.
