Psysiatry (Rehab Medicine)

Pediatric physiatrists is provided through Community Children’s and our affiliation with Seattle Children’s. Young patients with nerve and musculoskeletal disorders caused by an injury or chronic illness received treatment from a physiatrist who collaborates with a team that may include a nurse, occupational and physical therapist, speech language pathologist, psychologist, nutritionist and social worker. The goal is to help the child achieve the maximum level of functioning. To improve tone management in patients with cerebral palsy, the physiatrist also provides botox treatments under sedation.
