Conditions we treat

Physical therapy

The goal of physical therapy is to promote normal development and independent functioning. We provide services to inpatients and outpatients for issues including:

  • Abnormal muscle tone, such as lower muscle tone or muscle spasticity
  • Arthritis and other rheumatic diseases
  • Brain disorders, such as cerebral palsy, meningitis, encephalitis, stroke, or seizure disorders
  • Brain injuries from car crashed or other trauma
  • Burn and vascular injuries
  • Cancer, blood disorders, or other conditions that keep children inactive for long periods of time
  • Coordination concerns
  • Developmental delays
  • Dysfunction of the cardiopulmonary and cardiovascular (pulmonary/respiratory) systems, such as heart defects
  • Dysfunction of the musculoskeletal (orthopedics) system, such as clubfoot, Legg-Calvé-Perthes syndrome, scoliosis or spina bifida
  • Dysfunction of the neuromuscular system, such as muscular dystrophy
  • Failure to thrive
  • Genetic diagnoses with developmental impact, such as Down syndrome
  • Neonatal complications and prematurity
  • Post surgical
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Toe walking
  • Torticollis, a problem caused by tight neck muscles in infancy that prevents full range of motion and a misshaped head
