Physical therapy for pediatric injuries may include a range of techniques, including exercise, manual therapy, and modalities such as heat or ice to help reduce pain and inflammation. Physical therapists may also provide education and guidance on how to safely perform activities of daily living, avoid certain movements or positions that may be harmful to the affected area, and prevent future injuries. The goal of physical therapy for pediatric injuries is to help children recover as much function and independence as possible, and to minimize the impact of the injury on their daily lives.
