Powerhouse Therapy

Children 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 11-29th, 2016. A modified constraint induced therapy summer camp, including our specialized teen program. Early registration discount January 15 through March 1st.

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)
Awareness of the impaired upper extremity
Motivation and self confidence
