Kennedy Krieger offers a number of specialized clinics that offer a variety of age-appropriate and individualized treatments for musculoskeletal, orthopedic and neurological conditions.
We offer the following outpatient clinics that provide pediatric rehabilitation services:
The Ataxia and Cerebellar Disorders Clinic provides expert diagnosis and treatment for ataxia and cerebellar disorders for children under the age of 16. We treat children with congenital ataxia and structural differences in cerebellar development, as well as children who have newly developed or long-standing, acquired ataxia.
The Brachial Plexus Injury Clinic offers brachial plexus injury and peripheral nerve treatment for infants, children and adults with birth-related or traumatic brachial plexus injuries.
The Center for Brain Injury Recovery helps children and young adults with a variety of brain injuries recover and make the transition back to home, school and community life.
The Community Rehabilitation Program is an option for rehabilitation that occurs right in a patient's home or other important community settings.
The Concussion Clinic treats children and adolescents, assessing patients' best path to optimal recovery and helping them return to academic, athletic and community life.
Increasing use of upper extremities in children with the goal of helping patients participate more fully in play, self-care and school activities.
The Cranial Cervical Clinic evaluates and treats infants and young children with plagiocephaly (abnormal shape of the head) and torticollis (asymmetrical posturing of the head, or head tilt, also known as “wry neck”).
The Fairmount Rehabilitation Programs at Kennedy Krieger Institute offer an array of interdisciplinary therapy programs for patients with injuries and disorders of the brain, spinal cord and musculoskeletal system.
A center designed to provide new hope for people with spinal cord injury and paralysis.
The Limb Differences Clinic at Kennedy Krieger Institute is committed to meeting the unique needs of children and adolescents who are missing part or all of a limb or limbs.
The Orthopedic Outpatient Program at Kennedy Krieger Institute focuses on musculoskeletal diseases, injuries and other conditions that affect the trunk, back and the upper and lower extremities.
The Pediatric Pain Rehabilitation Program at Kennedy Krieger Institute offers a continuum of services for the evaluation and non-narcotic treatment of chronic pain and functional disability in children and adolescents.
At the Phelps Center, our clinicians and therapists specialize in providing neurological, developmental, and rehabilitative evaluation and treatment for children and adults with a wide variety of developmental motor disorders, including cerebral palsy.
Physical Medicine and Neurorehabilitation Clinic
The Philip A. Keelty Center for Spina Bifida and Related Conditions serves children and adults with spina bifida, myelomeningocele (meningomyelocele) or myelodysplasia, as well as other related conditions of the brain and spine such as hydrocephalus, Arnold-Chiari malformation and tethered spinal cord syndrome.
The POTS Clinic is a collaborative program between Kennedy Krieger Institute and The Johns Hopkins Hospital. This collaboration combines the expertise of both organizations to provide the best outcomes for children with this disorder. We provide medical evaluations and the most recent treatment options designed to improve overall health and quality of life.
The Specialized Transition Program, a day hospital, helps children and adolescents who are undergoing intensive neurorehabilitation transition back into their home community and school life. The day hospital fills a unique niche: the treatment of patients who no longer require round-the-clock medical observation and therapy, but who still require intensive therapy before full return to the community is recommended.
