Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a specialized therapeutic treatment which is focused on improving the body’s ability to move and then learn new skills through movement. We understand that all children are unique and not everyone fits into a specific therapy model, so by individualizing treatments we are able to provide the most effective intervention for each patient.

At Neurotherapeutic Pediatric Therapies, our physical therapists are highly trained to assess and provide treatment to children from birth to young adults.

Description

Ankle foot orthotics are devices that support or correct musculoskeletal deformities and/or abnormalities of the ankles, arches and feet. Patients can be casted to provide optimum fit and control or there are also less expensive off-the-shelf models. At Neurotherapeutic Pediatric Therapies our physical therapists have received special training to assess whether your child will benefit from orthotics, select which type of orthotic will provide optimal results and cast and fit Cascade DAFO’s (dynamic ankle foot orthotics). Therapists will also train the family on how to put orthotics on, the wear schedule and how to monitor orthotic fit.
