Playing is Healing
FIND THE ROOT CAUSE OF YOUR CHILD’S INJURY
Physiatry evaluates the body as a whole system to better diagnose injury or illnesses affecting your nerves, muscles, bones, spine and brain.
FUNCTION IS OUR GOAL
Once the diagnosis is clear, we focus on your child’s function and returning them to activities at home and at school.
ENHANCED QUALITY OF LIFE
When kids move better, they play more and feel better. Physiatry focuses on finding non-surgical solutions to movement barriers, so children can get back to enjoying their young lives.
Full Medical and Rehab Care
If your child has been diagnosed with a neuromuscular disorder, a brain or spinal cord injury, or has sustained an injury that affects the musculoskeletal system, he or she might need rehabilitation medical care. Pediatric physiatrists are doctors who diagnose your child’s medical condition and develop a treatment plan that takes both your child’s medical and rehabilitation needs into account.

Some of the conditions pediatric physiatrists commonly treat include the following:
· Acquired brain injuries
· Brachial plexus palsy
· Cerebral palsy
· Gait abnormalities
· Limb deficiencies
· Musculoskeletal conditions and injuries
· Neuromuscular disorders
· Spinal cord injuries
