Children and teens receive pediatric rehabilitation following a major illness, injury or procedure to overcome the challenges they face on a daily basis. The program also supports children with conditions that limit their physical activity.
Pediatric rehabilitation is guided by a number of principles that are based on the recovery mechanism and the reorganization mechanism of the patients, as well as the age and developmental level of the patients.
Integrating evaluations and therapeutic interventions within the rehabilitation process requires the coordination of a transdisciplinary team. Child neurologists are uniquely positioned to contribute to the field of rehabilitation by treating children with injuries or malformations of the brain and spinal cord.
Benefits of Rehabilitation:
An array of health conditions can be managed through rehabilitation, including diseases (acute and chronic), ailments and injuries. The intervention may also be complementary to other health interventions, such as medical and surgical intervention, so that the best possible results are achieved. With rehabilitation, for example, complications associated with injuries, strokes, and fractures such as spinal cord injury can be reduced, managed or prevented.
Reducing hospital stays, preventing readmissions, and avoiding costly hospitalization are all possible benefits. Furthermore, rehabilitation enables individuals to gainful employment and participate in education, while remaining independent at home, and minimizes the need for caregiver supported care.
