Pediatric Rehabilitation

Pediatric Rehabilitation

At DMR Move, our team of pediatric therapists is dedicated to providing the best evidence-based and individualized interventions to help each child develop the skills they need to reach their full potential.

What Is Pediatric Therapy?

Pediatric therapy is a specialized branch of physical and/or occupational therapy that focuses on the needs of children and adolescents with various developmental, neurological, or orthopedic conditions. These conditions can affect the child’s ability to perform daily activities, participate in sports, or enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

DMR Move’s Approach to Pediatric Rehabilitation

When your child has an injury or pain, it can be frustrating and challenging to find the right provider for them. Here at DMR Move, our team of experts have extensive training in both pediatric rehabilitation and pain rehabilitation and can bring the two worlds together to help get your child back to being a kid!


Whether your child experiences chronic pain, sustained a sports injury, or was born with a condition that limits their physical movement and development, we are here to help! 

Pain Management

Pain can affect children of all ages and abilities, and it can interfere with their daily activities, school performance, and emotional well-being. At DMR Move, we understand that pain management is an essential component of pediatric rehabilitation, and we treat every child as a human, not a machine. 


Our team of experts in pediatric rehabilitation uses our innovative approach called the Human Rehabilitation Framework to help children with pain feel better and move better. This may include using gentle hands-on techniques, exercises, and movements that are specific to the child’s unique needs. They also teach children and caregivers how to cope with pain and enjoy life more. We want to give your child the chance to feel and move better, and we will work with their individual goals to move them forward!

Sports Injury Treatment

Playing sports is a great way for children to stay active and have fun, but it also comes with the risk of getting injured. Sports injuries can affect different parts of the child’s body, such as bones, muscles, joints, and ligaments. They can cause symptoms like pain, swelling, stiffness, and reduced mobility. 


Treating these injuries efficiently is essential to help your child return to sport quickly and safely. Our team of pediatric therapists can bridge the gap between sports injuries and pediatrics and will focus on creating a customized care plan that addresses each child’s specific needs. This may include restoring movement and strength, improving movement variability, as well as education for both the child and caregiver on strategies to reduce the risk for future injury.

Increased Mobility

At DMR Move, we believe that mobility is essential for children’s well-being and development. Mobility is the ability to move freely and easily in different situations and environments. Some children may face challenges with mobility due to conditions that affect their muscles, joints, nerves, or coordination. 


We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to move with confidence and ease, and our goal is to work with each child and their caregivers to achieve that. Whether your child was born with a condition that limits their physical development or has suffered a recent injury, we are here to help them recover and get back to their daily activities. This may include using specific interventions based on each child’s unique needs or providing education to children and caregivers on how to use assistive devices or adaptive equipment if needed.

What to Expect from Our Pediatric Therapy Programs

Pediatric Physical Therapy Exercises

Children who need physical therapy can benefit from a variety of exercises that help them build strength, mobility, and endurance. These exercises are part of the personalized care plan that our licensed physical therapists create for each child. 


Such exercises may include guided movements, aerobic activity, balance training, and coordination exercises. The exercises are adapted to each child’s specific needs and abilities to ensure that they achieve their maximum potential. Our physical therapists will teach the child and caregivers how to perform the exercises safely and effectively at home, creating the opportunity for them to move better and feel better!

Pediatric Occupational Therapy Exercises

Children who need occupational therapy can benefit from a variety of exercises that help them develop fine motor skills and functional abilities. These exercises are part of the personalized care plan that our licensed occupational therapists create for each child and can include hand-eye coordination tasks, sensory integration, and self-care tasks such as dressing and feeding. 


These types of exercises help children with developmental, neurological, or physical disabilities to engage in daily activities and become more independent. Additionally, our occupational therapists will teach the child and caregivers how to perform the exercises safely and effectively at home, creating the opportunity for them to learn better and live better!

Personalized Care Plan

At DMR Move, we understand that each child is unique, and their condition requires a tailored approach to rehabilitation. That’s why we use the Human Rehabilitation Framework, which is a patient-centered approach that focuses on the whole person, not just their symptoms. 


Our team of pediatric therapists assess every aspect of the child’s physical, emotional, and social well-being to develop a personalized care plan that meets their specific needs. We work closely with the child and their family to ensure they understand the goals of the treatment plan and the steps required to achieve them. With this approach, we can provide children with the best chance of success in their rehabilitation journey.

Improved Outcomes and Quicker Results

By using the Human Rehabilitation Framework, our pediatric therapists can achieve more efficient and effective treatment resulting in less referrals, medications, and future appointments. 


Additionally, our approach emphasizes proactive treatment, which means that we identify and address potential issues before they become more significant problems. This can lead to faster recovery times and a shorter duration of therapy overall. This ultimately empowers them to return to their favorite activities and enjoy life.

To determine the need, our amazing team of pediatric therapists will assess the child’s condition and create a customized treatment plan that shows how many sessions they recommend. The number of sessions may depend on things like how serious the condition is, how old and healthy the child is, and what the therapy aims to achieve.
