Richmond Hope Therapy Center (RTHC) provides innovative and traditional physical therapy options for children and young adults with cerebral palsy (CP) and other disorders or conditions.
Services we offer
Using the TheraSuit Method of intensive therapy, children receive 3-4 hours of therapy a day, 5 days a week, for 3 consecutive weeks. We provide tailor-made plans that address the specific needs of our young patients. We design programs using innovative tools like TheraSuit Therapy and the Universal Exercise Unit (UEU) to focus on targeted exercises that stretch and strength train in order to gain function. In order to not lose momentum, we design therapy plans to happen on consecutive days to ensure we capitalize on yesterday’s gains for today’s performance.
The TheraSuit is an innovative tool that increases proprioceptive input, or body awareness, and assists with body alignment to help patients strengthen their muscles to maintain a more desired position. With repetition of precise movements, the central nervous system pathways are retrained and new patterns of movement develop. The suit, when used in conjunction with intensive therapy, accelerates progress so that patients are able to develop and follow the correct movement patterns in everyday activities.
Traditional Physical Therapy
We provide traditional outpatient therapy and use tools such as weights, bolsters, benches and treadmills. Children who have delays in gross motor development often benefit from physical therapy on a regular basis. We focus on strengthening activities, balance activities, gait training, functional activities, and stretching programs as appropriate for each patient.
