Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
At ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital, we want to help your child explore the world at his or her best. We provide a full range of diagnosis, treatment, management, and coordination of care for children with special physical needs. The goal of our pediatric physiatry services is to improve or restore children's functional levels. These functional levels are based on age-appropriate developmental skills including communication skills. Frequently, children are referred to physical, occupational and speech therapy for treatment.
Pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation can assist with a vast array of diagnoses including cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and other nervous system disorders and muscular disorders. Please speak with your child’s primary care physician, pediatric therapist or other pediatric specialist for a referral.
