Our occupational and physical therapists and speech and language pathologists have specialized pediatric training and years of experience treating torticollis and plagiocephaly, feeding conditions, concussions and many other diagnoses.
Our available pediatric programs and services include:
The Pediatric Feeding Team treats patients with feeding and swallowing difficulties including:
• Limited acceptance of food types and textures
• Motor and sensory challenges
• Negative eating behaviors
• Oral motor strength and coordination deficits
• Bottle and nipple selection for infants
In addition to improving feeding skills, we also work to boost children’s overall well-being through treatment, training and caregiver support. We believe caregiver and family involvement is a key component for success.
Concussions are brain injuries and should be evaluated by professionals. Our Pediatric Post-Concussion Team has occupational and physical therapists who treat symptoms such as headaches, visual perception and motor problems, gross and fine motor coordination, balance and posture. We combine manual therapy with movement and muscle re-education techniques to help children return to school and sports as soon as safely possible.
Torticollis and Plagiocephaly Therapy
Torticollis (shortening or tightening of a neck muscle) and plagiocephaly (flattening of the back or side of the skull) often occur together. The physical and occupational therapists on our team help newborns and children improve neck motion, gain equal use of arms and legs, improve eye-hand coordination and strengthen trunk muscles. Plagiocephaly patients may also be referred to Mary Free Bed Orthotics in Holland for evaluation and fitting of helmets or neck collars.
Your pediatrician makes a referral to Mary Free Bed requesting your child receive rehabilitation at our Holland location. Hours are 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday.
