Why Choose CWJR for Pediatric Neuro Physical Therapy

CWJR offers a wide range of interventions and equipment to be utilized in the treatment of neurological diagnoses in pediatrics. Our passionate team of Doctors of Physical Therapy (DPTs) and Physical Therapy Assistants (PTAs) at CWJR are skilled in the use of the Universal Exercise Unit (UEU) for out of the box interventions which are individualized to each patient’s specific needs.

The UEU can be used as a supportive system to assist in functional activities and a resistive tool for strengthening  in order to progress our patients to their highest level of physical function, from early developmental delays to high level functional activity in adolescents.

Anakin started with Crawl Walk early fall. When starting Crawl Walk’s Speech Therapy he was only able to speak a handful of words. Now, only months later, Anakin is speaking in sentences. His confidence has grown and is excelling in preschool.

Pediatric PT Certifications at CWJR

The Physical Therapy department also carries certifications in techniques such as Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT) and therapeutic handling, CranioSacral Therapy and Reflex Integration. Our therapists develop an individualized treatment for each child with interventions focused on the areas of the brain needing further development.

Each patient is provided with an individualized evaluation, collaborative plan of care and one on one intensive therapy sessions throughout their time at our clinic. It is our goal to ensure therapy is a fun and challenging environment where pediatric patients can grow and learn new skills. We focus sessions on maximizing function to enable a child at any age to live their best life while increasing their confidence in mobility in not only the home, but community and school environments alike. 

Pediatric Physical Therapy FAQ's

Doctors recommend that children should walk by the age of 18 months. If your child is not walking, talk with a doctor about what could be wrong and how they can help you address this issue. Doctors also suggest talking to doctors if you feel like your baby’s motor skills are underdeveloped at 1 year old; it might indicate underlying developmental delays or problems which need attention from a professional who has experience in dealing with young children

Children with physical limitations often struggle navigating an environment made for people who don’t share those same challenges due largely– but not entirely–to delayed motor development and reduced muscle control which can make them slower at large movement tasks.  

Pediatric physical therapy focuses on helping children reach their full potential by overcoming impairments, injuries and a host of other issues that can hamper them from performing common tasks or progressing normally through the stages of development.

Physical therapists are the foundation of rehabilitation for children with physical functional problems. Injuries or other conditions can wreak havoc on a child’s mobility, but when they’re seen by a qualified therapist early enough in their development it could be possible to avoid long-term consequences that compromise quality of life.

Physical therapy is not just about getting rid of pain—it also involves stabilizing muscles and joints so kids stay healthy as they grow up!

Early intervention is the act of identifying and providing adequate early support to children who are at risk for poor outcomes by fostering a set of personal strengths that prepare them for adult life.
