The therapists at PPTS have extensive experience in treatment of neurological conditions
such as cerebral palsy or spina bifida. Most children with neurological conditions
receive therapy through early intervention or school programs. Some families chose
to have extra periodic therapy through PPTS particularly during school breaks where
the child may not receive services at all. The therapists at PPTS routinely use modern
technologies such as EMG Triggered Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation and EMG biofeedback
as a way of getting quicker results - the children love to work with these technologies
as they are just like computer games
Over the past three decades scientists have shown that brains can change. Up until
that point it was believed that if the brain was damaged the resulting disability
was permanent because the brain could not change. This exciting new knowledge allows
patients with disabilities as a result of brain damage to make functional progress
in movement control if they engage in the rights type of training.
Working intensively over a period of weeks will yield progress in children with neurological
conditions that will not be seen through regular weekly therapy.
Contact PPTS to learn about options for intensive periods of therapy.
