Physical Therapy at Mini Miracles is FANTASTIC! We have 5 therapists and 2 PTA. Our therapists are very experienced and have years of training in the field of pediatrics. We strive to be a truly evidence-based practice and hold continuing education in high regard. Our PT program is under the direction of a Pediatric Certified Specialist. She does a phenomenal job ensuring that our program is evidence based and is researching new treatment techniques continually. We see children with a variety of diagnoses, ranging from Autism, ADHD, SPD, Down Syndrome, CP, Trauma, Abuse, TBI, Spina Bifida and other Neural Tube Defects, Hydrocephalus, Congenital Orthopedic diagnoses, Dyspraxia, Developmental Delay, Prematurity, Genetic Syndromes, and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, as well as many others. We use a developmental approach to therapy using therapeutic activities/techniques using Neuro-Developmental Treatment, Gait Training using the best equipment from area vendors to facilitate independent mobility, Equipment Evals and Recommendations, Kinesiotaping, SPIO Compression Garments, Orthotics and Prosthetic Management, and therapeutic exercise/protocol for orthopedic conditions. We use an episodic care model that has proven to have better generalization of skills to the “real” world. In this model, we shift kids from 1:1 therapy to master skills, to intensive group therapy to practice them in a more realistic setting, and then to our “Imagine Groups” for a very real social setting. This process keeps the child from getting to ritualistic, only completing skills learned with their therapist in a certain therapy room. They will instead use their new skills in all settings regardless of whether their therapist is present. We treat children from 0-18 in a variety of settings, those being home, pre-school, elementary through high school, in the community, and at the outpatient clinic. We serve Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia through Early Intervention Services, School System contracts, and Outpatient Services
