Pediatric Rehabilitation

We can help children and adolescents get their lives back.

Our services are powered by the unmatched care provided by the Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center for the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis at UHealth Jackson Memorial.

Jackson’s child and adolescent rehabilitation program provides a warm and friendly environment for pediatric and adolescent patients. This program is an integral part of the full spectrum of care delivered at Holtz Children’s Hospital. Our outpatient therapies and inpatient rehabilitation care is provided by specially-trained therapists from the Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center for The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis at UHealth/Jackson Memorial.

Our pediatric rehabilitation services begin with a thorough evaluation to identify the child’s needs and determine the most effective program of individual and group therapies. Both children and parents provide their own input regarding goals, concerns, and treatment preferences.

Our coordinated team effort includes parents, our multidisciplinary staff and a host of community services. We are dedicated to providing quality, family-centered health care in a sensitive, loving, homelike environment.

It is especially important to us that the child’s caretakers expand their understanding of the child’s medical condition and learn how to better meet their child’s needs. As part of a world-class medical center, we can easily consult with pediatricians, psychologists, dietitians, social workers, and child life therapists through our network of physicians.

In addition, teachers from Miami-Dade County Public Schools work one-on-one with pediatric rehabilitation patients, helping them maintain their academic skills. Because education is an essential part of Jackson’s rehabilitation program, parents receive extensive information about their child’s condition, likely outcomes and resources for short- or long-term support.

Some of the conditions we treat include:

  • Arthritis
  • Amputations
  • Burns
  • Congenital or spinal deformities
  • Deconditioning
  • Dorsal rhizotomy
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Near drowning
  • Organ failure
  • Orthopaedic injuries or disabilities
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Strokes
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Transplants
  • Tumors
  • Ventilator dependence
