Metamorphosis Pediatric Physical Therapy

 

 

Are you frustrated or confused by your child’s physical therapy program?  Do you have unrealized aspirations for your child?  Hope begins here!  Metamorphosis Pediatric Physical therapy offers comprehensive physical therapy evaluations and Cuevas Medek (CME) based treatment for children with mild, moderate and severe neuromuscular delays. CME is an intensive form of therapeutic exercise that focuses on stimulation of postural righting reflexes.  The technique is especially effective in treatment of infants and children with atypical muscle tone.  Although little known in the United States, CME is utilized in pediatric physical therapy treatments in South America and Europe.  Outcomes are generally superior to traditional NDT-based therapy.  We have successfully improved gross motor function in children with a variety of diagnoses including but not limited to cerebral palsy, congenital brain malformation, periventricular leukomalacia, traumatic brain injury, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, prematurity, spina bifida, hydrocephalus, Down syndrome, gravitational insecurity, as well as a host of other genetic disorders.  CME is also helpful for the clumsy child.  Visit us at metamorphosispediatricpt.com to view examples of treatment sessions in our gallery and to learn why our clients say “a unique blessing; exceptional PT; a true miracle worker; life changing”! 

 

SPECIAL NEEDS - MEDICAL PROVIDERS/DENTISTS
Medek pediatric PT is a highly effective treatment of low muscle tone or spasticity through postural reflex stimulation. Exercises are performed to stimulate the child’s instinctive desire to be upright in sitting or standing, or to walk. Where traditional therapy teaches a developmental model (roll, sit, crawl, walk) the focus of Medek is walking; the other motor milestones typically emerge spontaneously. Medek bypasses damaged or compromised brain systems and targets more primitive and more protected reflexive responses. Medek is effective because it targets healthy vs. damaged areas of the brain.
