Speech, Physical, and Occupational Therapy for Children and Adolescents in Sycamore

At the KishHealth Physical Therapy Center in Sycamore, we understand that when it comes to treating children, a different process is required for optimal results. Kids simply don't respond well to therapy programs and treatment settings designed for adults. That's why we developed a comprehensive multidisciplinary therapy program and treatment area dedicated to children and adolescents.

Our pediatric therapists love kids and know how to encourage and work with children of diverse backgrounds and conditions for the best possible outcomes. Pediatric therapy takes place in a fun and relaxing environment. Our interdisciplinary teams of specialized physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists work together to develop individualized programs that help children achieve their maximum potential. Our team of therapists has numerous years of experience and carries various specialties and certifications including Early Intervention Credentials.
