Powerhouse Therapy

Children today with one-sided weakness (Hemiparesis) are challenged in using both hands together. This results in an inability to function at the same level as their peers causing frustration in completing simple tasks like eating, self care, and play.

To address these challenges, Powerhouse Therapy utilizes the concepts of Constraint Induced Movement therapy. CI therapy is a family of treatments that teach the brain to "rewire" itself. Over 150 published studies support the use of CI therapy and research has shown that this intensive model is 6 times more effective than traditional therapy.

Your child has an opportunity to participate in this intensive treatment in two different fun and motivating settings.

Camp Open Hands: July 7-25th, 2014. A modified constraint induced therapy summer camp. Early registration discount January 15 through March 1st.

Individual Therapy Program: 3 week treatment sessions, 5 days per week from 3-6 hours daily.

The goal with each child is to improve their quality of movement and amount of use of the affected arm and hand in activities of daily living. Improvements may include:

Use of arm, hand and fingers
Skills to care for self (feeding, dressing, etc)
Strength
Coordination
Awareness of the impaired upper extremity
Motivation and self confidence


Who is Eligible? Children ages 2-13 years who have limited use of one side of their body due to diagnosis such as:
Cerebral Palsy
Stroke
Head Injury
Hemispherectomy
Brachial Plexus Injury
