Pediatric Physical Therapy at NAPA Denver

 

At NAPA Center, we take an individualized approach to therapy because we understand that each child is unique with very specific needs. We embrace differences with an understanding that individualized programs work better. For this reason, no two therapeutic programs are alike. If your child needs our services, we will work closely with you to select the best therapies for them, creating a customized program specific to your child’s needs and your family’s goals.

Innovative Tools

After spending two decades traveling around the world in search of the best pediatric therapy and treatments for her son Cody, Lynette made it her life’s mission to help him reach his full potential. Her journeys around the world inspired her to make the most innovative techniques and tools like DMI, SpiderCage, and the NeuroSuit available under one roof.

Intensive Physical Therapy

NAPA Center also offers intensive pediatric therapy programs which attract families from around the world. We use the Intensive Model of Therapy (IMOT) when treating children with cerebral palsy and other neurological disorders. This treatment model is increasingly used throughout the world as patients, therapists, and doctors recognize it’s many benefits and outstanding results. NAPA therapists create a customized program for each patient that varies in time, duration, intensity, and tools used. Children often advance to the next developmental skill or higher during the three-week program.
