The answer is simple you do not need to 😊
A correctly setup pediatric medical center or a pediatric therapy center needs to have the various approaches of all pediatric physiotherapy schools under one roof.
Be it NDT (neuro-developmental treatment), hydrotherapy, Cuevas Medek Exercises (CME),Suit Therapy or Spider cage.
It also needs to cater for both models of therapy – regular therapy and intensive therapy models.
Those are all pediatric Physiotherapy tools to help the child progress.
Each of those approaches has something to offer. Each of those approaches can help certain diagnosis and can be contraindicated to others.
So How do We Decide?
Simple, the director of rehabilitation who is familiar with all pediatric Physiotherapy approaches as well as the different diagnosis will discuss thoroughly with the team after a formal assessment is conducted, to best advise which approach, frequency, session duration best suits each child.
This applies also for all disciplines in the pediatric Therapy setup: for Speech therapy, occupational therapy, feeding therapy and ABA therapy.
The recommendation/approach can change upon the revaluation and progress achieved by the child.
So you can start with one approach and then change to another
We will be happy to answer any questions with regards to the various disciplines available worldwide for Pediatric Physical Therapy.
