Pediatric physical therapists at the Munroe-Meyer Institute treat movement dysfunction in individuals diagnosed with conditions like cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, scoliosis, spina bifida and any other disorder that affects strength, balance, coordination or motor planning.

The goal of physical therapy is to promote independence, increase participation, facilitate motor development and function, improve strength and endurance, enhance learning opportunities and ease challenges with daily caregiving for children and adults with developmental disabilities or movement dysfunction.
