Children with disabilities represent a unique population within rehabilitation. Whether the result of congenital, developmental, or acquired conditions, children sometimes require rehabilitative care to ensure proper, healthy development. At The Center for Rehabilitaiton & Sports Medicine, we offer a number of rehabilitative care programs tailored to the special needs of pediatric patients.
Common pediatric rehabilitation services include:
- Occupational Therapy helps children develop age-appropriate skills through play. Our certified Sensory Integration Specialist addresses children’s self-help skills, fine and gross motor skills, sensory processing skills and handwriting skills.
- Physical Therapy helps children who have developmental delays, range-of-motion limitation, strength/muscle weakness, balance difficulty and abnormal tone with the goal of promoting functional gross motor skills.
- Speech Therapy helps children who have articulation, language, voice, stuttering, feeding or swallowing disorders. Therapists focus on children's abilities to be successful with all forms of communication including speaking, listening, reading, writing and cognitive development.
Rehabilitation services require a referral from your physician.
