INTENSIVE PHYSICAL & OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY SERVICES


Children with Neuro Muscular Disorders, Cerebral Palsy, Stroke or Traumatic Brain Injury do not reach the preferred level of functional independence in traditional Physical Therapy. Even with years of therapy, a child with the potential to walk could still be confined to a wheelchair.
 
When the neuro pathways that the brain uses to create motor control (body movement, balance awareness and speech) are inhibited or damaged before birth, through illness or injury after birth, body control is limited to the neurological level of the child’s brain.


The therapies we use at CITNW uses the brain’s ability to create new neural pathways and develop function through repetition. This is known as neural plasticity. The brain is particularly easy to (RH) Habilitate or train through consistent and continuous repetition. This consistent and continuous repetition creates new neural pathways in the brain, giving the child function.


Many children gain more progress towards their goals in 2 weeks of intensive therapy than they do in a whole 12 months of ongoing traditional therapy! This means they often advance to the next developmental skill or higher in a 2 week program. For example, if a child is using a walker, could possibly gain the strength, balance and ability to start to walk with crutches.
