Ochsner Therapy & Wellness for Children

The Pediatric Therapy & Wellness team specializes in addressing limitations in the younger population - specifically infants, toddlers and adolescents. Issues addressed may be a result of genetic disorders, developmental delays, neurological or orthopedic conditions.

If you think your child would benefit from one or more of these individualized specialty programs, ask your doctor about a referral to see one of our pediatric therapists.
