Pediatric Neurological Physical Therapy
The body's nervous system can be damaged by injury, infection, structural defects, degeneration, tumors and more, which can cause any number of neurological disorders. Unfortunately, nerve disorders can occur in people of all ages. Pediatric neurological physical therapists will work to improve function and increase independence, with an overall goal to help your child move more freely.
Common Neurological & Movement Disorders That We Treat:
Conditions that arise in the brain from either brain injury, medication, autoimmune disease, infection, or genetic disease which causes a child to move too much or too little. They often result in a repetitive extra movement or sound, involve a shaking tremor, stiffened posture of the muscles, or difficulties with balance and coordination.
Common conditions include:
- Restless Leg Syndrome
- Tourette Syndrome and Tics
