Adults aren’t the only ones who need rehabilitation therapy to maximize their physical, mental and social abilities. Some children and adolescents also need specialized services to build strength, achieve their functional potential, and develop the skills they need at home, at school and within their communities.
Fauquier Health’s Pediatric Rehabilitation Services, the only one in the area to offer physical, occupational and speech therapies, now has two, kid-friendly locations in Warrenton and Gainesville.
Children may benefit from pediatric rehabilitation services if they have or are recovering from:
Kids who need pediatric rehabilitation services receive care from multidisciplinary teams of specialists who are trained to handle the unique needs of pediatric patients. The teams often include doctors, nurses, therapists (physical, occupational and speech) and other rehabilitation professionals who can help evaluate patients and assess their limitations.
Pediatric rehabilitation specialists design individual treatment plans to maximize patients’ independence and the quality of their lives. Team members use a variety of techniques and technologies that can help:
Some pediatric patients may need only short-term rehabilitation therapy to address certain acute injuries or issues. Rehabilitation, however, can play a major role in health care for kids with complex, lifelong conditions.
While kids and adolescents undergoing therapy may be tackling difficult issues, rehabilitation professionals provide services in an age-appropriate way that keeps pediatric patients engaged. For example, therapists may use fun activities to help kids develop key coordination, motor and hand-eye skills that may improve their walking, feeding or handwriting skills. The gains children make during rehabilitation therapy often help boost their self-confidence and self-esteem, giving them a sense of accomplishment.
The main pediatric office is located on Blackwell Road in the Warrenton Professional Center building. Over the past few months, the rooms have been renovated and new therapeutic tools have been added, which the children see as “new toys.” Call 540-316-2770 with questions about the pediatric therapy programs.
