Galion Community Hospital Offering Pediatric PT

GALION, OH -- Galion Community Hospital is now offering pediatric physical therapy for newborns and patients up to 22 years of age in their Speech House, located directly behind the hospital.

Avita's pediatric physical therapist, Carol Wolfe, and her team of physical therapist assistants provide treatment and education to children who have problems with motor skills caused by a developmental delay, birth defect, chronic illness, or injury.

Avita's therapists intervene by evaluating and consulting children and parents on gross motor development, muscle tone and strength, posture control, pre-gait/gait training, neuromuscular function, endurance, body alignment, and environmental adaptations.

"Galion Community Hospital's therapy program is goal-oriented for both parent and child," commented Wolfe. "It is so important to develop the strength and range of motion children need to move through their environment easily."

For children who rely on mobility aids such as wheelchairs or orthoses, Avita pediatric therapists show children how to navigate safely through their environment.
