Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) is an intensive treatment approach for children with decreased use of one upper extremity (hemiparesis/hemiplegia) due to stroke, CP, or other neurological disorder.
Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) is an intensive treatment approach for children (18mo-16 years) with decreased use of one upper extremity due to hemiparesis or hemiplegia. It involves constraining your child's unaffected arm, using a removeable cast. Camp Open Hands incorporates fun camp activities while in the cast that lead to increased function of the weaker arm/hand and ability to use two hands together. Contact Charlene at 404-933-9869 to discuss if your child is eligible for this intensive occupational therapy approach.
Financial Assistance NOT Available
Each child brings his lunch and snacks to the camp.
Powerhouse Therapy offers CIMT in an intensive 1:1 or camp approach. Our program is based on substantial research involving constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) for children with one-sided weakness due to stroke, cerebral palsy, or other neurological brain injury. Children with weakness or decreased range of motion due to brachial plexus, or orthopedic injuries/surgeries may also benefit. CIMT is a therapeutic intervention designed to restrain the use of the unaffected upper extremity and encourage the use of the affected upper extremity through practice. Staff includes occupational therapists with specialty training in CIMT.
