Generally we treat a child or adolescent who has experienced an injury or surgery to muscles, bones, or joints. Our clinicians possess advanced training in the evaluation and treatment of surgical and non-surgical dysfunctions. A few of the more common orthopedic diagnoses/procedures we evaluate and treat include Scoliosis, Torticollis, Legg-Perthes, Toe Walking, Osteotomies, Lengthening Procedures, Delay in Gross Motor Skills, Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip, Cerebral Palsy & Post-Botox Injections
The most effective treatment involves a team including you, your child the therapist and your referring physician. During the evaluation, the therapist will explain what he/she is doing and will answer any questions that you may have about the injury/condition and the treatment plan. At the end of the evaluation, you, your child and your therapist should have a good understanding of the situation and your functional goals. Finally, the therapist will notify your physician of the findings and send the treatment plan for the physician to review and approve.
