Physical Medicine & Rehab (PM&R) – What to Expect
The therapists and other pediatric rehabilitation experts at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital empower children and their families to live their best lives. We provide the tools and support to address our patients’ physical and developmental needs. And we’re with you every step of the way, working together to restore your child’s function to the highest level possible.
We offer both inpatient and outpatient treatment options, so your child can get the care they need in the appropriate setting. Depending on your child’s unique needs, their treatment plan may require one or more approaches, including physical, occupational, feeding or speech therapy.
When your child comes in for an appointment, you can expect:
- An inclusive, welcoming environment that offers support for the entire family
- Access to a full-service children’s hospital with its extensive network of specialists and care options
- Individualized therapy services and equipment such as wheelchairs and communication devices to help increase your child’s independence
- Patient- and family-centered care that actively involves our patients’ families in their treatment process
