Children with SCI

The objective of our program for children is two fold. First, we educate the family on the long-term benefits of activity-based recovery. Second, we teach a family member to work with the child on a consistent recovery program. We empower the family to train at home or a local gym and provide long-term objectives, guidance and coaching. Return visits are a necessity as improvements and changes occur, but the majority of the work can be done at home.

As a child with a spinal cord injury grows, the body will grow into and adapt to the wheelchair. Instead, we try to provide the nervous system stimulation necessary for a chance beyond a wheelchair. Since we are working with children, the workout program must be fun yet supported by developmental movement patterns that all humans perform as they develop. By using closed chain exercises to stimulate the nervous system, we facilitate an environment for possible reorganization and regaining of function.
