What is Intensive Physical Therapy?

Many physical therapists focus on treating adults, but children need special care suited to their age and developmental abilities. At the Intensive Physical Therapy Institute (IPTI), based in Salt Lake City’s Millcreek area, we specialize in pediatric patients. Our dedicated therapists are trained in helping children with injuries and disabilities, both congenital and acquired.

Some of the conditions our therapists have treated successfully:

  • Tourette Syndrome
  • Spinal Cord Injury, both Congenital and Traumatic
  • Developmental Delays
  • Chromosomal Disorder
  • Cerebral Palsy (CP)
  • Bowel and Bladder Problems
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Spina Bifida
  • Torticollis

Through our Intensive Physical Therapy Model and neurodevelopment treatment (NDT) methods, it is possible for children to reprogram their brains where there is dysfunction. This method is also effective for treatment of relatively minor injuries such as sprains and breaks, and for more serious problems such as scoliosis.

Our team of physical therapy specialists can also use NDT to help with special needs such as Cerebral Palsy. We don’t believe your child is stuck at a certain level due to his or her diagnosis. Instead, your child with disabilities may reach a higher level of functioning and become less dependent on others for care. We use hands-on, individual treatment to help alleviate function and movement problems and help your child reach full potential.
