Neurological, Genetic and Developmental Conditions
At Butterfly, our physiotherapists have experience working with children of all different ages and functional levels, who may have a diagnosis of a neurological, genetic or developmental condition. We have experience with a wide range of conditions including but not limited to global developmental delay, developmental coordination disorder, hypotonia or hypertonia, cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury, seizure disorders and spina bifida. Also treated at Butterfly are children with Angelman Syndrome, Down Syndrome, Rett Syndrome, Prader-Willi Syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome and muscular dystrophy.
Depending on the child, some children may undergo specilaized procedures to assist with their body functioning such as Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy, Percutaneous Mysofacial Lengthening, Botox treatment and serial casting. Physiotherapy treatment is often indicated and beneficial after these procedures, and the Butterfly team is here to help!
