Welcome to Physical Therapy

Physical therapists specialize in developing activities for children and young adults using exercise and therapeutic play to address movement, coordination, balance, strength and endurance issues. Physical therapists also work with a child’s medical team, caregivers, school and community to encourage children to function independently in their own environment.

At The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, we have 20 APTA-certified clinical specialists in cardiopulmonology, neurology, sports medicine and pediatrics. Our staff provide a variety of diagnostic and rehabilitation services, including:

Physical therapy services are available for inpatients at CHOP's Main Building. Services are also available for outpatients at Main and at our Specialty Care Centers in Exton, Chalfont, Springfield, King of Prussia, Voorhees and Atlantic County.

For more information about physical therapy or to request an appointment for your child, please call us at 215-590-5819. If you have an appointment, please visit the Your Visit section of this site for directions, parking information and more.
