CEREBRAL PALSY

Because of tremendous variability cerebral palsy presents a wide range of challenges to children, parents and physical therapists. Our well rounded approach utilizing Neurodevelopmental Treatment and Motor Learning strategies has been successful throughout the years at helping our clients to become as functionally independent as possible.

Our treatment strategies are focused on improving your child's skeletal alignment by inhibiting nonproductive muscle patterns or synergies. With sound skeletal alignment, your child is guided through more efficient movement patterns while stimulating the needed musculature. Engaging your child to become and remain active in the movement process is achieved through sound motivational strategies, skilled handling and effective set-up of the environment for success.

Consistent parent training is an integral part of our program as well as effective communication and problem solving with other members of your child's medical/therapy team. Complex issues such as bracing, spasticity management and therapeutic equipment are best done with input from several sources. Together we can successfully achieve the goals that are most important to you and your child.
