Utilizing cutting edge interventions, we are the only clinic in Oklahoma to provide therapy in the Universal Exercise Unit, aka the “spider” cage! All the way from Europe, treatment in the “spider” cage consists of bungee cords which provide extremely dynamic support, allowing our therapists to strengthen isolated muscles with goals of sitting, standing and walking in a child with cerebral palsy or other neurological conditions. We also specialize in custom wheelchair seating, treatment of Pediatric Incontinence and feeding therapy for oral aversions, oral motor and feeding issues. At HTR Pediatrics, we passionately believe that every family deserves a place to turn when they need help.
