Hope on the move

CRCC’s Physical Therapy Team specializes in working with children who have a wide range of diagnoses, medical complexities, cognitive challenges and developmental delays. Physical therapy uses individualized exercises, strategies, technology and activities with the goal of promoting and improving gross motor skills. Physical therapists can also assist with assessing, fitting and ordering orthotics, standers, walkers, gait trainers and wheelchairs.

CRCC’s physical therapists provide evaluation, treatment, consultation – and of course, hope – to bring improvement in the following areas.

• Gross motor development
• Muscle tone, strength and flexibility
• Posture/postural control
• Pre-gait and gait training
• Locomotion patterns
• Coordination, balance and motor planning
• Neuromuscular function
• Endurance
• Body alignment
