Pediatric Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Pediatric Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

The physicians who practice at Children’s Health℠ and rehabilitation staff specialize in treating children and adolescents. Understanding the effects of conditions such as spina bifida or muscular dystrophy on your child’s body, we can help manage the disease to ease discomfort and improve everyday movement and function for your child.

Doctors who specialize in physical rehabilitation also are called physiatrists. They are trained to diagnose the specific reason for your child’s problem and are prepared to design a treatment plan especially for your child to restore functions such as speech and language or movement. The physiatrist works with a team of professionals who help your child with specific activities, such as occupational or speech therapists.
