Physical Therapy

At Wood Therapy Services, we are dedicated to supporting children in developing their muscular system and motor skills so that they can move and play freely and without pain. Our pediatric physical therapists provide individualized therapy to address issues related to:

  • Gross motor delays (i.e., walking, jumping, running, etc.)

  • Global developmental delays, disorders, and syndromes (i.e., Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, etc.)

  • Physical injury (i.e., broken bones, tendon or ligament injuries, sprained joints, post-surgical interventions related to cardiac or pulmonary rehabilitation, etc.)

  • Neurological conditions (i.e., TBI, brain tumors, etc.)

Physical therapy focuses on functional activity training. Children will practice new skills in the context of meaningful and enjoyable activities to help them succeed in their daily lives!

The initial evaluation process is based on each child's developmental history and parent concerns. Our physical therapists will complete a formal standardized test that will provide a baseline of the child's physical abilities and give insight into their strengths and challenges. We will discuss the findings and work together to set goals that are both appropriate and achievable.


If a child has had a PT evaluation from another company within the last 3 months of contacting Wood SLP Services, Inc. we will use those evaluation results to guide our therapy plan and goals.


Outpatient, Clinic-Based Services

Come visit us at our family-friendly clinic located in Shelby, NC. For some families, receiving therapy in a dedicated therapy space, outside of the home, works best. We have created a welcoming and clean clinic where families can freely join us in our therapy rooms or wait in our lobby during their child's session. 

Wood Therapy Services also has a dedicated gym space that allows for movement, exercise, and treatment of gross motor skills and physical challenges!

Early Intervention Services

Wood Therapy Services provides early intervention PT services for children ages 0-3 years, who have been found eligible for the N.C. Infant Toddler Program by the CDSA. If your child is under the age of 3 years old and you have not had a developmental evaluation through the Children Developmental Services Agency (CDSA), please contact them to schedule an evaluation. If your child is eligible for speech, occupational, or physical therapy, we are an approved provider for families in Rutherford, Cleveland, Polk, Lincoln, Gaston, Burke, and Catawba counties of North Carolina.

If your child was not eligible for services through CDSA, but, you are concerned about their development, please contact us to discuss our private practice services. 


Using a mix of play-based therapy and caregiver coaching, we provide services for children in homes and daycares! Contact us to begin physical therapy services.

Home, Daycare, and Community Setting

We work on developing strength, coordination, and motor skills in the child's daily life activities, allowing them to learn and grow in their most natural settings. Our home, daycare, and community therapy services are both convenient and effective for children, teens, and young adults with physical challenges. 

During physical therapy sessions, parents are invited to be as hands-on as they would like to be. Our physical therapists teach parents how to support their child at home, leading to quicker progress. In daycares, teachers are also given education on how to support physical therapy goals in the classroom. Our goal is to help each child succeed in all of their most important environments!
