Pediatric Rehabilitation

Pediatric Rehabilitation

Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapists know the profound joy of helping children and their families achieve greater happiness under challenging circumstances. Therapists work to strengthen and promote a child’s independence and integration at home, in school and in the broader community. Pediatric therapists have an impressive array of techniques to treat musculoskeletal problems and improve the mobility of children facing numerous health conditions such as:

  • Developmental Delay
  • Sensory Integration Dysfunction
  • Sensory Processing Disorders
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Cerebral Palsy and Neuromuscular Disorders
  • Down Syndrome
  • Learning Disabilities/Dysgraphia
  • Infant Torticollis
  • Toe Walking
  • Post-surgical issues
  • Brain Injury
  • Spina Bifida
  • Post Cancer Treatment

What does the first session look like?

Therapy begins with an interview of the child and his/ her family along with a physical exam to diagnose the source of the child’s movement difficulties. From there, the therapist guides and individualizes a treatment regimen. Physical and Occupational Therapists work together to improve the child’s strength, range of motion, endurance, balance, coordination, gait, heart and lung endurance, and motor development.
