Children with burn injuries may require specialized rehabilitation care immediately after their injury. Children with severe burns may need extra care for months or years after they are injured. Our physical therapists and occupational therapists are specially trained to care for children with burn injuries.

Individualized treatment to keep your child moving.

Our expert team develops individualized care plans that start in the hospital and continue once your child has transitioned to outpatient care.

  • Tight burn scars (contractures)

Rehabilitation Services and Features

Children with burn injuries will be measured for custom pressure garments. These garments not only protect injured skin, but they put pressure on burn scars to minimize scarring and improve circulation.
