Pediatrics Q&A

What is pediatrics?

Pediatrics is an area of medicine that focuses on the special health needs of infants, children, and teens. Apex Wellness is a telehealth physical therapy practice that offers pediatrics services.

Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones received advanced training so they can develop individualized treatment plans to meet your child’s specific health needs and goals. 

Is my child a good candidate for telehealth pediatrics?

Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones determine if your child is a good candidate for pediatric telehealth services during a consultation. They provide care for children of all ages, including infants. 

Your child may be considered a good candidate for pediatrics services at Apex Wellness if they’re struggling to meet fine or gross motor developmental milestones or have a congenital condition that affects their musculoskeletal system.

Apex Wellness also creates personalized physical therapy plans for children and teens recovering from a sports injury.

What can I expect during a pediatrics consultation?

You can expect a comprehensive evaluation during a pediatrics consultation at Apex Wellness. Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones use advanced telehealth technology, so there’s no need to bring your child to a clinic for an evaluation. 

During your pediatrics consultation, Dr. Patel or Dr. Jones asks detailed questions about your child’s medical history, growth and development, and family history. 

For a sports injury, questions may focus more on the injury, including the area of the body affected, symptoms, and activity that caused the injury. 

What are pediatrics treatments?

Apex Wellness takes a multiple body systems approach to care and designs comprehensive pediatrics treatment plans that improve overall health and wellness, not just the motor delay, congenital condition, or injury. 

Your child’s treatment plan may include:

  • Customized exercise program
  • Nutrition program
  • Assistive devices (braces, crutches)
  • Sport-specific training
  • Injury prevention

Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones customize your child’s program, taking into consideration risk factors, family history, and current health goals. They use evidence-based techniques that help your child reach their goals quickly. 

To monitor your child’s progress, Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones schedule regular telehealth appointments. However, with their telehealth services, they’re always available for immediate care.
