Physical Therapy

Skills on the Hill offers physical therapy services at both our Arlington, VA and Washington, DC locations. Physical Therapists work with children to address developmental differences that impact participation at school, home and in the community.

Physical Therapists typically address strength, balance, endurance, coordination, and motor planning that contribute to daily routines including; dressing, stair negotiation, participation on the playground/gym class. Our PT’s can also help address any musculoskeletal conditions including knee pain, scoliosis, back pain, foot pain etc. Our PT’s work alongside children birth to teenage years on a variety of skills. Treatment is targeted by identifying barriers to participation with a goal of gaining improved independence while building self-esteem!
