- Rehabilitation: providing physical and occupational therapy to help children build skills, strength and mobility needed for everyday activities.
- Scoliosis specific exercise: a specialized physical therapy program that uses exercises, stretching and breathing to improve a patient’s scoliotic posture.
- Orthotics and prosthetics: offering orthotic and prosthetic services specifically for children, including upper and lower extremity prosthetic care, scoliosis bracing and a broad spectrum of pediatric orthotic services.
- Virtual visits: tele-health capabilities that enable video connection to patient homes and other remote sites across the region, creating more opportunities for access to children in need of pediatric orthopaedic services.
