Pediatric Physical & Occupational Therapy Opens Larger Facility in Nanuet
Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapy of Hudson Valley, PLLC has moved from New City to 160 East Route 59 in Nanuet. The new facility is significantly larger to help more children and has a state-of-the-art therapy gym with sensory specialty equipment, a rock wall, zip line, trampoline and spider cage.
Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapy will host a grand opening celebration on Thursday, December 8th at 11:30 am for current clients and their families. Anyone wishing to learn more about the therapy services provided is encouraged to call 845-362-7787.
Pediatric physical therapy helps children develop or regain the skills they need to move their bodies in order to meet everyday challenges. This can include helping babies to crawl in order to retrieve their favorite toy that’s not in arm’s reach or retraining a child to negotiate stairs following a fractured femur from a fall. Pediatric occupational therapy helps children independently perform activities of daily living. Through the use of a variety of treatment approaches, OT goals include improving a child's fine motor coordination, upper body strength and endurance, visual motor/visual perceptual skills, body and spatial awareness, motor planning, cognitive-adaptive skills and self-care abilities.
“We are excited about this move to a more spacious location,” says Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapy Founder Linda Fuller, PT. “In addition to the therapy gym, we have two private fine motor rooms, a separate baby and toddler area as well as space for in-person parent education workshops. We can now offer more late-afternoon and early-evening appointments at our Nanuet facility.”
Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapy of Hudson Valley was founded in 2005 to focus on helping children achieve their personal best through leading-edge therapeutic techniques and dedicated, one-on-one treatment sessions. Over the years, Fuller has incorporated innovative treatments like Intensive Physical Therapy, Spider Therapy, TheraTogs, and Whole-Body Vibration Therapy into her practice. In 2010, Fuller added occupational therapy to her practice in order to provide a comprehensive therapeutic program to her clients under one roof. More information can be found at www.ptotkids.com.
