The Cook Children's Sports Physical Therapy program specializes in the treatment of the growing athlete. We understand that children and teenagers are not just small adults. Their bones, muscles and tendons are different, as is their response to pain and injury. For those reasons, their treatment must also be different. Our physical therapists are uniquely trained in pediatrics, offering the expertise needed to help get your child on the right path to recovery.

Cook Children’s is dedicated to your child's well-being: To ease any concerns you might have, we're taking great precautions to create the safest environment possible for patients, families and staff. Read about the safeguards Cook Children’s has in place.
