Occupational & physical therapy
The goal of our occupational and physical therapy department is to prevent deformities that can result from a burn injury. Therapists work with patients and families to achieve the best functional and cosmetic results. Individualized programs are developed to help patients return to their pre-burn level of activity. Therapy involves work in the areas of mobility, scar management, self-care, and activities of daily living to assure a child’s total recovery. Several kinds of equipment, like stationary bikes or rowing machines, are used in a gym-like environment to encourage movement.
