Pediatric Disorders Rehab

PROGNOSIA Provides Best Paediatric Disorders Rehab


Paediatric Rehabilitation assists in early detection of health problems and uses a wide variety of modalities to treat disorders in the paediatric population. The therapists are specialized in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of infants, children, and adolescents with a variety of congenital, developmental, neuromuscular, skeletal, or acquired disorders/diseases.

Treatments focus on improving gross and fine motor skills, balance and coordination, strength and endurance as well as cognitive and sensory processing/integration. Children with developmental delays, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, or torticollis are treated by our team of paediatric rehab experts.

Cerebral Palsy Rehab


Cerebral palsy (CP) is one of a group of permanent movement disorders and are caused by the brain’s inability to control the muscles. The symptoms appear at infancy or in early childhood and symptoms may vary in severity. Children may also have poor coordination, difficulty speaking and poor cognition (thinking and reasoning). Though the symptoms may be apparent in early infancy, they may continue to become more obvious and pronounced as the child ages.

After doing an assessment of the patient and looking over their medical history, most physicians will initiate a regimen of physical therapy. Children with this disability may improve simply by working on their precise motor skills, exercising their muscles and practising balancing while they stand or walk. With advancements in medicine and technology supportive or symptomatic treatments like occupational and speech therapy are helpful for those who suffer from cerebral palsy. 

Occupational therapy at PROGNOSIA encourages rehabilitation by emphasizing activities of daily life. Trained occupational therapists and therapy assistants use everyday tasks (occupations) as therapeutic tools, reinforcing patients’ abilities and helping them develop vital skills. Cerebral palsy presents physical and cognitive challenges, which can interfere with a patient’s ability to perform everyday activities. Occupational therapy targets these limitations, enabling patients to fully participate in daily life and achieve individual goals.

Seizure Disorder Rehab

PROGNOSIA Provides Seizure Disorder Rehab

Epilepsy is a disorder that results from the surges in electrical signals inside the brain, causing recurring seizures.

Children and adults who have disorders or injuries that affect movement or coordination are often referred to rehabilitation. While most people with epilepsy do not need physical intervention, those persons who have limited mobility or are injured may be appropriate candidates for rehabilitation. In these cases, rehab experts can help enhance mobility and coordination through various approaches, including stretching, exercise, and skills development.

Exercise improves fitness, energy and mood and relieves stress. Improving overall health and wellbeing in this way can help reduce seizures and the impact of epilepsy for some people. It can also help people feel more in control of their health.

Learning Disability Rehab


Learning disabilities have no cure, but early intervention can lessen their effects. People with learning disabilities can develop ways to cope with their disabilities. Getting help earlier increases the chance of success in school and later in life. If learning disabilities remain untreated, a child may begin to feel frustrated, which can lead to low self-esteem and other problems.

Experts at PROGNOSIA can help a child learn skills by building on the child’s strengths and finding ways to compensate for the child’s weaknesses. Interventions vary depending on the nature and extent of the disability. 

Muscular Dystrophy Rehab


A muscular dystrophy is a group of diseases that cause progressive weakness and loss of muscle mass. In muscular dystrophy, abnormal genes (mutations) interfere with the production of proteins needed to form healthy muscle.

Several types of therapy and assistive devices can improve the quality and sometimes the length of life in people who have muscular dystrophy. Examples include:

Range-of-motion and stretching exercises. Muscular dystrophy can restrict the flexibility and mobility of joints. Limbs often draw inward and become fixed in that position. Range-of-motion exercises can help to keep joints as flexible as possible.

Exercise. Low-impact aerobic exercise, such as walking and swimming, can help maintain strength, mobility and general health. Some types of strengthening exercises also might be helpful. But it’s important to talk to your doctor first because some types of exercise might be harmful.

Braces.  Braces can help keep muscles and tendons stretched and flexible, slowing the progression of contractures. Braces can also aid mobility and function by providing support for weakened muscles.

Mobility aids.  Canes, walkers and wheelchairs can help maintain mobility and independence.

Breathing assistance. As respiratory muscles weaken, a sleep apnea device may help improve oxygen delivery during the night. Some people with severe muscular dystrophy may need to use a machine that forces air in and out of their lungs (ventilator).

Sensory Processing Disorder Remedies


Each person with sensory processing disorder (SPD) has unique needs and sensory difficulties. The first step on the road to treatment is to determine which senses are over-or under-sensitive. Treatment for sensory processing disorder typically includes occupational therapy, the introduction of a sensory diet, and sensory integration challenges that retrain the brain to respond differently to stimulation from the senses. Paediatric Therapy provides the highest quality of therapy for children faced with the challenge of mastering sensory or developmental skills.
