Pediatric neurological disorders are conditions involving the brain, nerves and spinal cord in children. Many pediatric neurological disorders are congenital (present at birth). Neurological disorders affect children differently than they do adults. Some of the most common pediatric neurological disorders are cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophies and brain injuries.
Children with disabilities represent a unique population within pediatrics. Clinton Physical Therapy Center focuses on maximizing the function and enhancing the lives of children with a wide range of conditions such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, brain injury, genetic abnormalities, general developmental delay, torticollis and other developmental disabilities.
Services available include evaluations, individualized treatment and home programs, parent education, equipment recommendations and coordination of care with school services.
