Pediatric Physical Therapy

Physical therapists are often able to relieve pain and to assist children in resuming daily activities. Physical therapists teach children exercises that assist in regaining strength, range of motion, and allow children to return to daily activities such as school, sports or recreational activities.

At Little Steps, we love children and wanted to make a special place for kids to heal. That place became the Little Steps in Glenview, Illinois.

Our specialists provide comprehensive care for the treatment and development of children with the goal of helping them to perform activities, develop physical skills, attain developmental milestones, and ultimately improve their quality of life.

Little Steps provides a unique environment for children recovering from an injury, illness, or condition. Dealing with injured children is different than dealing with adults who are injured. It requires a caring team trained specifically on how to support a child’s unique bone and muscle structure. Our caring team at Little Steps guides children through the pain and discomfort of early physical therapy. We have the patience and skill to keep them on task and moving toward wellness.
