Because children are growing and changing from infancy through adolescence, their rehabilitation often requires the coordination of many different types of services delivered over many years. At NewYork-Presbyterian, we continually tailor our treatments based on your child's anticipated growth, and offer a variety of physical medicine and rehabilitation treatment approaches, including:

  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Feeding evaluation and therapy
  • Botulinum toxin (Botox®) to minimize drooling
  • Spasticity treatment with Botox and phenol injections and intrathecal baclofen pumps
  • Dystonia treatment
  • Relief of chronic pain
  • Evaluation and fitting for wheelchairs and other adaptive equipment
  • Respiratory therapy for neuromuscular disorders
