Pediatric Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Back to NeuroDevelopmental Science Center

Department Main Image


We use rehabilitation interventions to improve daily function and quality of life for children and teens with disabilities of the brain, spinal cord and nervous system. These include cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, brain injury, spina bifida, neuromuscular diseases, hemophilia and amputation.

Our doctors use assessment tools, such as nerve conduction studies and EMG tests, to track electrical activity of muscles and determine your child’s physical and rehabilitation needs. From there, we can apply treatments through therapy, medical equipment or orthotics to improve your child’s development and daily function, from bathing and dressing to communication and mobility.

We also work closely with pediatric neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuropsychologists and developmental and behavioral pediatricians as needed.
