The focus of Nexus Children’s Hospital’s rehabilitation is to maximize our patients’ functional independence while providing necessary education to families leading up to the return to home and school. Physical Therapists (PT), Occupational Therapists (OT), and Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP) participate in the care of our patients at all levels of care with the valued input from the entire medical team.
Nexus’ medical team has experience in doctorate level teaching at local universities, professional-level continuing education instruction and graduate level clinical rotation mentoring. Our therapists have specialized training in identifying each child’s needs to implement an individualized care plan.
Our PT program treats the whole child and their individual needs, and focuses on recovery to get back to school, sports, and home. The team focuses on functional limitations as a result of the child’s diagnosis.
Our physical therapists are experienced in Neuro Developmental Treatment (NDT), Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), and a variety of other developmental instruments. They understand the physical and mental challenges a child can face during the recovery process. They work with other team members and families to help each child achieve his or her optimal developmental and functional levels.
