Cerebral palsy: current management

Our physical therapist can share with parents the benefits of  Constraint Induced Movement Therapy and Bimanual training in children with congenital hemiplegia. Our therapist attended a seminar in November, 2011, which highlighted the current studies underway on CIMT for children. Our work with children in the home environment appears to be the trend of the future and was supported by speakers and attendees at this seminar.

Stroke recovery at any age

Are you just learning about Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) or the SaeboFlex and SaeboReach? Research shows physical therapy using CIMT and Saebo techniques can be beneficial at any age or length of time since a brain injury.

Techniques are innovative and different than traditional therapy for the arm and hand. It may be beneficial to try traditional physical therapy initially to see how much you can improve. Be sure to tell your therapist that you want to learn to use your affected arm and hand, not compensate with the unaffected side.

After you have plateaued in traditional therapy, consider CIMT or training with the Saebo orthosis. It’s an innovative, yet highly successful approach, focused on making a connection between your brain and muscles. Your brain is never too old to learn!

CIMT: does it work?

If you want to use the most innovative technique to recover arm and hand movement, Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) is an option you should consider. You will need a moderate level of drive and dedication to succeed. Our experienced therapist is by your side every step of the way with the most innovative and proven techniques so you can work smarter, not harder.

It’s well documented that the skill of the physical therapist in CIMT training is the key to success. Our therapist has a proven track record – check out the Team Recovery page!
