The goal of the pediatric physical therapy group at Grow Learning Centre is to provide children with the ability to explore their environment in the most independent way possible.
Children that can benefit from physical therapy have diagnoses that include but are not limited to:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Genetic syndromes
- Heart and/or lung defects
- Spina Bifida
- Drug addiction
- Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
- Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Peripheral nerve injury
- Osteogenesis imperfecta
- Muscular dystrophy
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Developmental Delay
Our Physical Therapists at Grow Learning Centre focus treatments on improving developmental skills, motor planning, manipulation skills, balance and coordination. When determining individualized intervention, our therapists will communicate with the family and other professionals as needed, including physicians, nurses, teachers and other therapy disciplines.
The physical therapy gym is used for building strength and improving movement and skills needed to complete daily activities. Our licensed Physical Therapists guide children through developmental activities, such as crawling, walking, balance and coordination. We also assess and evaluate the need for orthotics and other adaptive equipment such as wheelchairs, gait trainers and standers.
