Services

We look forward to having your kid become a PediaFlex Kid!

 

This We Believe

We believe that functional outcomes are the primary emphasis of services and underlying movement processes such as flexibility, strength, and balance can greatly influence these outcomes. 

We believe that special attention needs to be given to the dynamics of learning, growing, moving, sensing, and interacting in order for these outcomes to be meaningful.

We recognize that kids are developing across many continuums that are inter-related and influence each other greatly.

That’s what makes for awesome physical therapy services. 

 

These are Our Passions

Family and patient centered goals
Emphasis on a multi-system approach
Shared responsibility in striving towards results
Education and learning
Recreation, leisure, hobbies and fun
Having a healthy sense of humor and general cheerfulness

 

This is What We're Familiar With

We are familiar with seeing kids improve their strength, flexibility, balance, fitness, posture, walking and moving, climbing stairs, gross motor skills, recreational participation, activities of daily living (dressing, bathing, playing, and working) and use of adaptive equipment or orthotics for positioning and movement. 

We are familiar with many different pediatric movement disorders:  Spina bifida, cerebral palsy, torticollis, developmental delays, pain, muscular dystrophy, arthritis, autism, dyspraxia, cancer, Down syndrome, seizures, scoliosis, spinal cord injuries, head injuries, pre and post operative care, seating and positioning with adaptive equipment, supplemental birth to three care, and much more.

We are familiar with a variety of approaches to physical therapy problems:  strengthening, flexibility, posture, and functional visual motor activities;  daily movement, gait training, stairs, wheelchair skills, adaptive equipment fitting and training; pre and post operative protocols for orthopedic and neurosurgical approaches such as leg lengthening, muscle lengthening, fractures, casting, and tone reduction procedures; development of home exercises, and support for community activities;  collaboration, communication and consultation with community program providers such as Tops Leagues, Special Olympics, art and music, dance and gymnastics, and equestrian therapies.

We are familiar with the IEP/PPT process and can provide independent physical therapy educational evaluations. This may include planning for triennial reviews, for a second opinion, for cases in due process, and for an assessment of baseline status.  Comprehensive written reporting and feedback is provided for the educational team.
