Rehabilitation Treatment for Children
We provide rehabilitative therapy for children of all ages. Various forms of physical therapy are needed to treat conditions caused by genetic or neurological disorders. Orthopedic rehab helps children with conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system which includes muscles, cartilage, bones, tendons, ligaments and joints.
We also provide extensive speech therapy for children treating conditions such as apraxia, dysarthria, stuttering, aphasia, other speech disorders and language delays in children.
Our pediatric physical therapists provide therapeutic treatments over a period of weeks and months. With repeated and consistent therapy, movements become easier and less restricted. Specific exercises and functional training for children can give pain relief and improve overall balance and strength.
We provide speech therapy for those who have language delays, articulation problems, those who stutter and brain injury patients. Many scenarios call for strengthening of the muscles of the mouth, face and respiratory system.
Comprehensive Swallow Studies
Our in-depth swallow studies help children swallow properly to digest food. If you don’t know the cause of your child’s condition, we can help determine if it’s an anatomical problem, an aversion to certain foods or weak muscles in the mouth and throat.
