With over 30 years combined experience, the MOSAIC clinics are an excellent place for children with physical therapy needs. Our team combines their love of children with their knowledge of the human body to help your children reach their maximum potential both now and in years to come. Treatment styles of our clinicians are generally play based, while subtly including evidence based techniques to promote independence. Parent and caregiver education is provided at each session to promote skill generalization and progression.

Some of the equipment we have available to us includes:

  • Aquatic Therapy Pool
  • Infant and Adult Treadmills
  • Playground Equipment
  • Balls and Bolsters
  • Free Weights
  • Swings of all types
  • Specialized Balance Equipment
  • Bikes and Scooters

Our Treatment strategies include many different techniques

  • Joint Mobilization
  • Myofascial Release
  • Taping Strategies
  • Neurodevelopmental Therapy (NDT)
  • Isolated strengthening activities
  • Muscle lengthening and stretching
  • Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)
  • Gait and postural training
  • Core stability
  • Body Awareness training
  • Yoga and Dance techniques

We have direct contact with other professionals that help us to meet our clients’ unique needs including Occupational Therapists (OT), Speech and Language Pathologists (SLP), Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapists, behavioral and educational consultants, and a licensed child psychologist all share our clinics. This provides seamless referrals between disciplines, and improves the continuity of a child’s care.

We frequently work with DME providers to obtain wheelchairs, standers, gait trainers, and other adaptive equipment our clients may need to improve their independence.

Referrals to Orthotists can help obtain compression orthoses and positioning orthoses such as AFOs, SMOs, and custom or prefabricated foot orthotics to improve orthopedic alignment.
