At Southern Tennessee Regional, we offer a comprehensive physical therapy program for both adults and children of all ages. Our pediatric program includes physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. Our skilled therapists evaluate and access each patient on their own individual ability to perform age-appropriate activities.
Once we have established a baseline assessment, our team designs an individual care plan with the family geared toward meeting and exceeding development goals. During this process, we constantly gaging and adjusting our treatment to make the largest impact possible with your child.
