Whether your child was injured playing the sport they love or was born with a medical condition—like muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, developmental delay, or hip dysplasia—making everyday tasks difficult, the appropriate orthopaedic rehabilitation can help your child achieve a fully active and playful life.
At LuskinOIC, your child will receive orthopaedic rehabilitation from dedicated specialists in pediatric orthopaedic physical and occupational therapy. Our state-of-the-art pediatric orthopaedic rehabilitation center offers specialty equipment enabling our therapists to provide individualized treatment plans to get your child back on the path to being active again.
LuskinOIC’s new pediatric orthopaedic rehabilitation center includes a kids corner creating an environment that motivates the youngest patients (ages 0-4) to move, develop coordination and grow; new equipment that strengthen a child’s extremities using eccentrically controlled movement; and a new Alter G machine first designed for NASA that enables gravity-eliminated walking and running activities to return patients to running activities earlier in their rehabilitation. And so much more.

LuskinOIC also specializes in specific conditions that may be affecting your child. These conditions include:
Toe walking is a condition in which a child walks on the balls of their feet. To correct this they should see an orthopedic specialist.
Flexible flatfeet is a common condition in children where the arches of the foot are visible while sitting, but disappear upon standing. The arch reappears when a child stands on their toes or the toes are hyperextended. Most children grow out of this mild deformity by the age of 7.
Whether your child is healing from an injury or managing a chronic illness, positive outcomes in physical and occupational therapy can pave the way for success in many other aspects of life—like boosting confidence and independence. At LuskinOIC, our goal is to guide your child’s recovery and teach you and your child how to prevent injuries in the future in our brand new, state-of-the-art Rehabilitation Center.

Your child’s hands may feel weak and stiff at first, but these exercises are designed to strengthen the hands and wrists to help your child return to participation in daily activities.
