We are now open and available to see patients in clinic. JumpStart therapist are also offering telehealth visits. For the safety of our staff, patients, and families we have implemented the following guidelines:

  1. Prior to coming to work each day the staff must self certify that they are fever free, have not had a fever in the past 48hrs, and have not been told to self isolate by a public health agency.
  2. All staff will be wearing the appropriate PPE including masks, and will glove for some manual based interventions.
  3. We have adjusted staff schedules to decrease the overall number of people occupying each clinic at any one time.
  4. Tables have been moved to promote social distancing of greater than six feet.
  5. We are cleaning before, during, and after patients are in the treatment area. This includes anything that may be touched by the patient. Our cleaning guidelines are based on recommendations from the CDC. Staff will be washing their hands before and after each patient treatment.
  6. Patients that are coming into the clinic must complete a screening tool to help prevent the spread of COVID19. This screening questionnaire will be sent to each patient prior to their appointment. The same questions apply to each return visit.
  7. We are asking that only patients come into the treatment area. If a caregiver must assist the patient, then the caregiver must also complete the screening tool.
  8. Any patient or caregiver coming into the clinic must be wearing a face mask from home before entering the building.
  9. Once a patient enters we are asking them to please wash their hands before they start working with the therapists.
  10. In regards to telehealth, we are using a secured platform and can easily send out the link for a telehealth visit with the therapist of your choice. Most insurances are covering this option.

Please contact us via our website or call one of the clinics should you have additional questions and to book your appointments now.

Stay safe and be well.

Pediatric Physical Therapy

Pediatric physical therapy is a specialty that deals with the wide variety of diagnoses that may affect your child's overall development and well-being from birth to 18 years of age. It is important that your child is treated by an experienced pediatric therapist in a facility that can properly accommodate children. The staff at JumpStart Physical Therapy offers a strong concentration in pediatrics, including a certified pediatric clinical specialist, a certified early intervention specialist and over 50 years of combined staff experience in pediatrics, as well as a spacious facility with equipment that is optimal to treat a pediatric population.

Our physical therapists rely on their expert knowledge in the treatment of many diagnoses including neurological (i.e., cerebral palsy, neuromuscular disorders, brain tumors), orthopedic (i.e., scoliosis, little league shoulder and elbow, swimmer's shoulder, spondylolosis, spondylolisthesis, torticollis, hip dysplasia, Sever's, Osgood Schlatter, patellofemoral pain, femoral anterversion, Femoral acetabular impingement, pre and postoperative orthopedic surgeries), cardiopulmonary systems (i.e., cystic fibrosis). These are just a few diagnosis we treat along with many others to help your child in any one of the following ways:

  • Reach age-appropriate developmental milestones (e.g., crawl, sit, stand, walk, run)
  • Improve participation in age-appropriate gross motor skills, school activities, or sports with peers
  • Rehabilitate from an orthopedic or neurological surgery
  • Improve flexibility, movement skills, strength, mobility, posture, balance, and endurance
  • Enhance the ability to negotiate important environments (home, school, job, community)
  • Improve self confidence

JumpStart's pediatric physical therapists strive to help each patient maximize his or her abilities. Your child's treatment always begins with a thorough evaluation by one of our physical therapists to assess the areas in which your child may have difficulty functioning. After examining your child, the therapist discusses the findings with you and establishes a plan of care that will allow your child to reach his/her individual goals, including an exercise program for carryover at home.
