Neuro Developmental Treatment Johnson City, TN Physical Therapy Technique

Neuro Developmental Treatment

Neurodevelopmental treatment (NDT) is a hands-on treatment approach used by physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists. NDT was developed to enhance the function of adults and children who have difficulty controlling movement as a result of neurological challenges, such as cerebral palsy, stroke, and head injury. This therapy uses guided or facilitated movements as a treatment strategy to ensure correlation of input from tactile, vestibular, and somatosensory receptors within the body. Therapists undergo intensive post graduate training to become certified in NDT. For more information, Contact Us Today at Johnson City, TN Center.
