Types of Treatment
The mission of BreakThrough Pediatric Therapy is that all children, regardless of ability or background, have unlimited opportunities to grow and develop into unique individuals.
Our physios strive to provide a safe sensory rich environment where children learn, play, and develop confidence in their abilities; this is our main objective. Utilizing a cohort of pediatric health professionals, families will have support, education, and sense of connectedness in our community. Using the multidisciplinary team approach, our staff of pediatric occupational and physical therapists treat a variety of conditions.
We offer physical therapy to the pediatric population with diagnoses ranging from developmental delay, cerebral palsy, and genetic syndromes to orthopedic conditions such as torticollis and growth plate injuries. Pediatric physios help children to improve their mobility, motor development, posture, strength, range of motion, balance and coordination. We believe in a family-centered approach with a focus on how the primary caregiver can assist the child to succeed in everyday activities by providing caregiver education and functional home programs. Aquatic therapy is utilized as an adjunct to land therapy when appropriate. We also cast and fit Cascade Orthotics for our pediatric patients.
Occupational Therapy promotes skills for the job of living. Occupational therapists use adaptive work and play activities to increase independent function, enhance development, prevent disability and help people achieve independence in all areas of their lives. Playing and learning are the main jobs of children and young adults. An occupational therapist can evaluate a child’s skills for play activities, school performance and activities of daily living and compare them to what is developmentally appropriate for a particular age group.
BTPT’s Occupational Therapists provide children and young adults with fun, positive, and meaningful activities to help improve cognitive, motor, and physical function. We encourage family members to be active participants in the development of goals and therapeutic activities in order to address each child’s individual needs.

- Fine and Gross Motor Coordination and Strengthening

Here’s what some of our patients had to say
Thank you so much! I love you guys and the care I received!
I recently had knee replacement surgery. I decided to do my physical therapy at BreakThrough Physical Therapy in Verona because it would be convenient. I am so glad I made that decision. Nash made me feel comfortable right away. He is very knowledgeable and has a calm, encouraging manner. I was thrilled with the success…
Julie and Jessica were invaluable in my breast cancer recovery. After a long recovery from a mastectomy, chemo, radiation, and reconstructive surgery with implants, I still suffered from pain in my ribs below my breast and pain in my breast area from radiation. The Breast Center at UW Hospital was incredible during the implant surgery…
From the first time I met Julie and Jessica, it was clear that concern for my total care was their priority. This included both the physical and mental challenges of breast cancer recovery. Upon learning of their focus on all aspects of this targeted program, I knew I was in the right place and on…
After a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction which required muscle to be removed from my back and brought to my chest, I didn’t want anyone touching me. My chest felt weird, I was in a lot of pain, and I was tired of doctor appointments. But I also felt very weak and knew I needed…

The warm, welcoming environment makes it a comfortable place to receive therapy. This puts him at ease allowing for the…
After just 4 visits…I feel like a brand new person. Before, I could barely walk for 15 minutes without my back screaming in pain. Now I’m zooming through therapy and going on walks at home.
Wonderful staff, very helpful, competent and professional. They listen to what I say and are working with me to meet my goal.
Amazing service. They have gone out of their way to call and follow up with me while doing my at-home exercises. Highly recommend.
My husband was skeptical of my choice to use physical therapy to treat my back pain instead of medications. After seeing my results from working with the BreakThrough Physical Therapy team, my husband is a believer now too.
