MAXIMIZE CHILDREN’S PHYSICAL AND FUNCTIONAL ABILITIES AND MINIMIZE THEIR LIMITATIONS
Westside helps children maximize their physical and functional abilities, minimize their physical limitations, and support them to reach their greatest potential. Our physical therapists use one-on-one, hands-on therapy designed to help children who display delays or deficits in gross motor development, mobility, gait, strength, and posture, or those who display pain or injury.
The goal of our pediatric physical therapy is to achieve long-term results for our children that they will sustain through adulthood. Our sessions are kid-friendly, and we ensure therapy is fun, safe, and inviting. Our expectation: life-changing results.
There are many reasons- one being we have over 1,000+ pediatricians referring to us for services. Above all is our parents’ feedback and quality care.
Every parent is sent a survey at the beginning, middle, and end of their therapy services. It asks: “On a scale of 1-10, how likely are you to refer Westside to your friends and family.”
Here is what parents say:
This is exactly why Westside is deemed the best.
While cost varies by insurance plan, number of therapy hours, and other factors, we still inform you on what you’ll expect to pay. We have built a sophisticated cost calculator that looks at 19 factors that impact cost. When we run it, it shows you a week-by-week prediction of cost.
This estimate occurs after your evaluation once we know the frequency of therapy. All you do is provide us with your insurance plan details, and we handle the rest.
We work with a wide variety of insurance companies and HMO networks. We are always expanding our network – click here to view the list of our currently accepted insurances.
Graduating kids from physical therapy is our goal. It means we did our job and the child’s concerns have been addressed. We do everything we can to achieve progress as quickly as possible, and ensure open communication between the family and the therapist on the child’s progress. The best progress is seen when combining consistent in-clinic sessions, and compliance with your child’s home exercise program. When it is agreed the concerns have been fully addressed, it is time to graduate AND celebrate!
At Westside, we generally treat children birth-18 years old. Our physical therapists are trained to work with babies, toddlers, kids, and teens.
Most Physical Therapy treatment plans are 1-3 hours per week in-clinic, with 1 hour per week being the most common.
Our therapists teach the parents and the child how to carry over the exercises at home. This complements the in-clinic treatment and leads to lasting change.
We offer in-clinic therapy not only because the research indicates strong clinical results, but because it also fosters a community of support for our families.
We locate our Physical Therapy centers near you! We have over 25 locations across the Chicagoland area, including clinics in Rockford and DeKalb.
If you take a look at our Physical Therapy centers, you will see why kids are so excited to run through our doors when they arrive for therapy.
