Pediatric Constraint Induced Therapy –

Children’s Hospitals & Clinics of Minnesota offers Pediatric Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (PCIMT). Constraint Induced Movement Therapy is a program to improve movement and strength in a child who has weakness on one side of the body.  A constraint (cast or splint) is applied to the stronger arm and hand to limit movement for four weeks. This encourages more movement of the weaker arm and hand. The child then participates in six hours of therapeutic training and re-education for 21 days over the course of the four weeks.

Children’s offers a full program and a modified program. Both methods have led to reports of improved movement in children with hemiplegia. Many of the research studies have used different tools to measure the amount of change, making it difficult for us to accurately compare the methods.

Call Kathy Grinde, PT, at (763)416-8712 to discuss any questions you have regarding our programs.

Information about referrals – All children seen for PCIMT require a physician’s order. If you would like your child to be evaluated, we suggest you speak with your primary care physician to discuss if this would be an appropriate treatment for your child.
