Pediatric Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
At Gundersen, we know physical and cognitive impairments can limit a child's growth, whether it's physically, emotionally or academically. That's why our specialist in Pediatric Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation is passionate about helping maximize every child's quality of life, no matter what disorder may be affecting their development.
Our expert in Pediatric Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation—known as a physiatrist—diagnoses conditions, develops personalized treatment plans and leads a team in delivering comprehensive care. This often means collaborating across departments at Gundersen to provide multidisciplinary treatment for a variety of conditions.
Some of the most common disorders our physiatrist treats include:
Just like no two children are alike, our physiatrist tailors your child's treatment plan to meet his or her specific needs. Depending on the situation, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation services may include medication management, botulinum toxin injections (to treat muscle stiffness, spasms and pain), consultation on appropriate equipment and bracing or a referral to Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy or Speech Language Pathology.
