A Collaborative Approach

We strongly believe that a collaborative approach is crucial to ensure the most successful outcome for your child. With that in mind, our therapists:

  • Recognize the importance of addressing each family’s specific needs
  • Include your family’s specific goals in your child’s treatment program
  • Work closely with your child’s other medical and educational professionals
  • Engage other community service agencies in your child’s care, as needed

Our team completes full developmental, neurological and musculoskeletal evaluations of each child. We use the evaluation results to create a personalized and effective course of treatment. We focus each child’s treatment plan around specific, attainable goals.

Specialized Therapy Services

Our team provides specialized therapy services for children with certain health conditions and situations.

Infant Positioning for Play

Winchester Hospital’s Pediatric Rehabilitation Services offers treatment and education for two common, often related conditions that can affect babies:

  • Torticollis happens when muscles on one side of the baby’s neck become tightened.
  • Plagiocephaly occurs when one side of the back of the baby’s head becomes flattened. Typically, this is related to the child favoring one side or positioning on that side.

Our therapists work with babies to correct issues and teach parents how to:

  • Avoid plagiocephaly and torticollis
  • Encourage normal development
  • Maximize tummy time
