Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
The Physical Therapy Department provides comprehensive services to assist infants, children and adolescents to improve their gross motor, mobility and balance skills. Licensed physical therapists with expertise in pediatrics work with the child and family to develop goals that optimize the child’s functional abilities.
