Kings Rehabilitation Therapy Center is designed to help people of all ages restore function that has been lost due to injury or illness.
Our goal is to help children reach their full potential by fostering their development and providing rehabilitation services as needed. We also rehabilitate adults to help reintegrate them back into their homes and community environments successfully.
Our interdisciplinary team comprises Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Language Therapy.
KINGS THERAPY OFFERS
1. Early Intervention (EI) Program:
This program is designed to provide therapy services to infants and toddlers, from birth to 5 years old, who are delayed in their development or have a diagnosed medical condition known to cause developmental delay, in order to increase appropriate growth and development.
2. Sensory Integration Therapy (SIT):
The goal of sensory integration therapy is to follow the child’s lead and artfully select or modify activities according to the child’s responses. The activities create a variety of opportunities for the child to experience tactile, vestibular and proprioceptive input in a way that provides a ‘just right’ challenge, promoting increasingly more complex adaptive responses to environmental challenges. The result is improved performance skills that relate to life roles.
3. Neuro developmental Therapy (NDT):
Neuro developmental therapy (NDT) is a hands-on treatment approach used by physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists. NDT is developed to enhance the function of adults and children who have difficulty controlling movement because of neurological challenges, such as cerebral palsy, stroke, and head injury. This therapy uses guided or facilitated movements as a treatment strategy to ensure the correlation of input from tactile, vestibular, and somatosensory receptors within the body.
4. Hand and Upper limb Therapy ( HaULT):
This program provides assessment and treatment to those suffering from an acute condition that affects the use of their arms, wrist and hands. Such conditions can include post-operative repair of tendon or bone structures, carpal tunnel syndrome, stroke, spinal cord injury etc. Customized Hand Splinting is often combined with therapy to achieve maximum effectiveness, strength and hand function.
5. Women’s Health Physiotherapy:
Women’s Health Physiotherapy is the therapeutic treatment of all disorders affecting the pelvis and pelvic floor. It is designed to support women through all stages of life; during pregnancy, post-natal care, before and after gynecological surgery, pre-menopause, post menopause and beyond!
6. Speech and Language Therapy Program:
This program consists of the assessment as well as management of communication disorders in children and adults. Comprehensive speech and language assessments are undertaken to determine whether communication skills are developing typically, and whether professional intervention is warranted. Tailor-made to suit the individual needs of the child, our Speech Language Therapist will design individual treatment programs and carefully evaluate them on an ongoing basis, making changes as appropriate depending on the child’s/adult’s progress.
