Physio Therapy

Physio therapy begins with a comprehensive initial evaluation, after which a treatment plan and protocol is developed. The child’s therapy sessions will typically involve a variety of evidence-based techniques, including:

  • Neuro developmental treatment (NDT)
  • Roods
  • Activities of Daily Living (ADL) Training
  • Adaptive Equipment Training
  • Assistive Technology
  • Balance training
  • Constraint Induced movement Therapy
  • Gait Training/Assistive Device Assessment
  • Manual and Motorized Wheelchair Training and Positioning
  • Partial Body Weight Treadmill Training
  • Splinting of the Upper and Lower Extremity
  • Therapeutic Listening
  • Upper and Lower extremity Orthotic/Prosthetic Device Training

Our pediatric rehabilitation program employs a team approach, in which our physio therapists collaborate extensively with caregivers from other departments. For children with multi-disciplinary needs, thoughtful coordination between the occupational Therapy Department and these other disciplines occurs throughout the rehabilitation process as well as during the child’s reintegration back into school.

Our specialists work with these children, to help them overcome movement dysfunctions related to a wide range of conditions such as;

  • Developmental Delays
  • Genetic
  • Achondroplasia
  • Arthogryposis
  • Down Syndrome
  • Ehlers Danlos Syndrome
  • Muscular Dystropies/Spinal Muscular Atrophy
  • OsteogenesisImperfecta
  • Neurological
  • Brachial Plexus Injury
  • Cerebral Palsy (Spastic, Dystonic, Ataxic, Atheotoid)
  • Hypotonia
  • Spina Bifida
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
