Outpatient Pediatric Physical Therapy in a Loving Environment

Therapy Excellence, Inc provides pediatric care for clients from birth through the teen years. We specialize in helping new parents of infants with Torticollis, a condition in which a child’s head is tilted. Torticollis limits a child’s ability to turn the head to see, hear and interact freely with his/her environment.  We emphasize parent education and home strategies for our youngest clients.

Toe walking in toddlers and older children is easily managed by normalizing tissue mobility and flexibility, teaching parents gentle stretching techniques and playful strengthening exercises. TEI will also help parents consult with an orthotist when recommended.

“We first met Jodi when we took our 2 month old son, Jacob, for treatment of his Torticollis. Being new parents, we were nervous and anxious about his condition and wanted to ensure that he received the best treatment available. Jodi definitely delivered! Within the first few minutes of our initial visit, she put us at ease as well as created a bond with our son. She is not only a talented and knowledgeable therapist, but she’s also outstanding with children! We felt that Jacob wasn’t just another patient but that she really cared about him and his well-being! That is rare to find these days! Jodi helped our son in just a few short months and definitely exceeded our expectations. For that, we are forever grateful! We highly recommend Jodi for pediatric physical therapy.”

We also help clients diagnosed with Chronic or Complex Regional pain Syndrome. We’ve researched the effective management of CRPS in the inpatient setting and created a comprehensive program that enables children to stay home while completing their rehabilitation. One pre-teen client reported 95% improvement in activity and pain reduction after completion of her two-week program.

“Jodi Boyd is a blessing to our family.  My daughter, Shelby, was diagnosed with Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS/RSD) in her left foot in October 2008 at age 10.

When Shelby started working with Jodi, Shelby was using a wheelchair or crutches due to her severe pain.  Jodi worked with Shelby to desensitize her foot, as well as gain back all of her mobility. Jodi went above and beyond, researching Shelby’s condition and developing an intensive outpatient physical therapy program for Shelby’s CPRS, which successfully put Shelby into remission with her CRPS.

Words cannot thank Jodi enough for the care that she puts into all of her patients, and into my daughter Shelby.  Jodi is Shelby’s biggest cheerleader and always a phone call away when pain flairs.   All credit is due to Jodi for motivating and encouraging Shelby to push through her pain and become an active preteen again – playing competitive volleyball and shopping at the mall! I believe that because Jodi takes the time to develop sound relationships with her patients, she treats the whole person and her insight into therapy needs is priceless.

Thank you Jodi!  We love you!”
