“Experienced, effective, professional… all in a loving, welcoming family setting. I could go on and on about why I have and will continue to recommend Westside to my family and friends. When looking for a physical therapist for my son I wanted the absolute best, and I can 100% say that I found the best.”
– The Rapacz Family

Our Approach

Westside helps children maximize their physical abilities and minimize their physical limitations. 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 physical therapy is to achieve long-term results for our children that will sustain through adulthood. We never forget that a kid is a kid by ensuring therapy is fun, safe, and inviting. Our expectation: life-changing results.
