Pediatric Center

Welcome to the new FYZICAL Pediatric of Cordele! 

"Where every child dreams big, achieves the impossible, and shines their brightest - just as they were meant to!"

We saw a need for children local to Southwest Georgia to have a place fit specifically for their needs while attending therapy - so, we opened the Pediatric Center! Now, parents can find the treatment their children need much closer to home, in an environment made just for them.

When you have children, they become your everything. Seeing them in pain or unable to participate can be heartbreaking, and finding a solution may not be quick or easy. At Fyzical Pediatric Center, we create an encouraging environment for both child and parent to overcome any obstacles by providing one-on-one treatment and custom plans of care specific to your child. Your child is welcomed and loved at FYZICAL, and our therapists will walk alongside them as they recover and grow. 

At our Pediatric Center, every child dreams big, achieves the impossible, and shines their brightest – just as they were meant to!

From a large open gym area for activity and play, to closed off treatment rooms for focus and quiet, there's a place for every child's unique treatment, diagnosis, personality, and dreams. Our Pediatric Center is equiped with the proper and necessary materials needed to help children succeed and grow during their therapy appointments - whether it's physical, speech or occupational.

Our speech, physical and occupational therapists are trained and educated in pediatric practices and work with children every day, with a combined experience of 74 years! That means your children and grandchildren are in good hands when they visit for their therapy appointments.

Why Does My Child Need Therapy?

It can sound scary, but therapy isn’t scary – it’s fun! In our new Pediatric Center with the jungle gym, swing and fun toys, therapy is exciting! Whether your child is attending physical, speech or occupational therapy, there’s no need to worry about their referral. Your child may be injured, not reaching milestones, have a disorder, or need behavioral help. Either way, our Pediatric Center is a safe place that celebrates all children for who they are and encourages them to shine THEIR brightest!

Therapy is simply a way to open doors to continue the activities your child enjoys, and strengthen them to take on new challenges. Whether your child may is differently abled, isn't reaching milestones on time, or had a recent injury, our staff is here to create a unique treatment plan made just for them, so they can shine their brightest.

What To Expect

Taking your child to a new clinic with new staff and treatment can be overwhelming, but we’re here to calm the nerves.

After receiving a therapy referral, your child will attend an ‘evaluation’. This allows the therapist to assess their current status in the areas of concern. This evaluation provides a baseline understanding for parents and therapists on what treatment your child needs.

Next, the therapist creates a plan of care for your child - frequency of appointments, goals to achieve, and treatment methods are all things your therapist will piece together and continue to tweak as they work with your child.

Depending on the cause of your child in therapy, they may be discharged! This means they have grown and achieved what they were referred to therapy for, and no longer need us. We’ll be sad to see them leave, but so excited to celebrate their success!
