Care for Children with Physical Disabilities

Children born with disabilities or who have suffered a serious injury or illness that has changed their ability to function often need help improving or learning how to adjust. We know this can be difficult for parents, but you should know that there are many ways children with physical disabilities can often show progress and enjoy a happy and successful life. At Sidra Medicine, our team of skilled rehabilitation specialists can show you how.

Child Friendly, Family-Centered Care

Learning more about the patient and their home life is critical in rehabilitation. We take a family-centered approach to care and focus on what your child enjoys and activities you can all do together. Rehabilitation programs are customized to fit a patient’s unique needs and preferences.

Patients who can benefit from rehabilitation include those diagnosed with:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Brachial Plexus Palsy
  • Genetic conditions that affect movement
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Worsening of a progressive disease
  • Spasticity (we provide management including Botox)
  • Any condition that suddenly changes a child’s ability to move and function normally

Rehabilitation is a beneficial journey that shows children what they’re really capable of. A disability or chronic illness should not have to stand in the way of your child living a happy, fun, and productive life.
