Intensive Physical Therapy
Intensive Physical Therapy Available For Children of All Ages in Salt Lake City
The intensive physical therapy techniques and equipment we use range from the NeuroSuit, and Universal Exercise Units to PNF and NDT (see more detail on our website). We combine these and other techniques to help children with disorders such as cerebral palsy, paralysis, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, chromosomal disorders, traumatic brain injuries, dystonia, and severe developmental issues. We also use Kinesio Tape and its specialized taping methods. This amazing and effective treatment method was developed to normalize muscles and stabilize joints, allowing the body’s natural healing processes to take place, all without restricting range of motion. The use of the tape helps to stabilize and strengthen muscles and helps improve memory pathways so the brain remembers where and how certain muscles are supposed to move. Kinesiotape is a thin, lightweight, flexible and breathable cotton tape and can be worn continuously for three to five days so your child can get the benefits even after their therapy sessions.
The intensive model allows us the time to introduce new and more normalized patterns of movement. We then use our skills to modify and change our approach to meet your child’s responses to a variety of techniques. A customized home exercise program is then developed to continue the positive movement patterns at home, school and in the community.
