Conditions Treated

  • Acquired Brain Injury

    An injury to the brain that has occurred after birth and is not hereditary, congenital, or degenerative. 
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

    A pervasive developmental disorder characterized by severe deficits in social interaction and communication. Difficulties are noted in thinking, feeling, language and the ability to relate to others.
  • Brachial Plexus Injury

    An injury to nerves in the neck that control the shoulder, arm, hand and finger movement. This injury may also be known as Erb's Palsy, Duchenne's Palsy or Klumpke's Palsy.
  • Cerebral Palsy

    Refers to any one of a number of neurological or movement disorders that will not worsen over time but do permanently affect body movement and muscle control.

  • Childhood Obesity

    Childhood obesity is a serious medical condition that affects children and adolescents. Medical and genetic reasons mixed with lifestyle habits can make weight management more challenging.

  • Developmental Coordination Disorders

    Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) occurs when a delay in the development of motor skills, or difficulty coordinating movements, results in a child being unable to perform everyday tasks.
  • Developmental Delay

    Occurs when a child has not gone through the predictable changes in skill development often referred to as, developmental milestones, by the expected time period.
  • Feeding Disorders

    Feeding disorders are common in infants and children.
  • Gait Abnormality

    A problem with walking caused by disease or abnormality in the central nervous system; spinal cord; a vestibular disorder; peripheral nerve disease; degenerative muscle disease; neurodegenerative illness; skeletal diseases; foot conditions.
  • Learning Disorders

    Examples of learning disorders are Dyslexia, Expressive Language Disorder, Receptive Language Disorder, Visual Processing Disorder, Dysgraphia, and Auditory Processing Disorders.

  • Movement Disorders

    Movement disorders present as difficulties in moving arms, legs or any other part of the body.
  • Neuromuscular Disease

    Neuromuscular Disease - Conditions Treated
  • Orthopaedic Conditions

    Broadly concerned with the skeletal system (bones). Orthopaedic conditions may occur at birth or develop over time. Examples of orthopaedic conditions are scoliosis, club feet, hip dysplasia, joint pain, and gait abnormalities and conditions associated with trauma and injury.

  • Scoliosis

    A medical condition that presents as an abnormal curve of the spine. It is occasionally seen in children with cerebral palsy, spinal muscle atrophy or following trauma.

  • Sensory Integrative Processing Disorder

    A neurological disorder causing difficulties processing information from the senses; touch, movement, smell, etc.

  • Spina Bifida

    A developmental birth defect involving the neural tube. As well, the spinal vertebrae overlying the open portion of the spinal cord do not completely form or close.

  • Spinal Cord Injuries

    Damage to the spinal cord that result in a loss of function such as movement or feeling. Frequent causes of damage are trauma (car accident, gunshot, falls, etc.) or disease (polio, spina bifida, Friedreich's Ataxia, etc.).

  • Sports Injuries

    An increasing number of children have become involved with sports. The rise of both neurological and orthopaedic injuries has also increased resulting in a need for specialized rehabilitation of these sports related injuries.
  • Torticollis and Plagiocephaly

    Your therapist will work with your family to show you simple stretching exercises for your baby that include both passive and active range of motion.
  • Videofluoroscopy Swallow Studies

    Videofluoroscopy is conducted to view pharyngeal structures, determine abnormalities, and risks, as well as determine success with compensatory strategies related to swallow.  
  • Wound Care and Burns

    The goal of management of minor burns is to minimise pain and the risk of infection, achieve wound healing in a timely fashion, preserve physical function and minimise cosmetic deformity.
