Decatur County Memorial Hospital in Greensburg, Indiana has a strong pediatric therapy center. In the most general sense, pediatric therapy would be any medical treatment designed to alleviate or help treat conditions in children, usually from birth to the age of 18. Any condition that presents in the pediatric patient requiring treatment or remediation would essentially require some form of “therapy”. However, more often, the term may be used to discuss specific types of therapies that have use in the pediatric setting. These might include physical, occupational, and/or speech-language therapy designed specifically for children.
