Dr Sanjay Bhalerao, Consultant Paediatric Intensivist, said, “There are multiple reasons behind the growing number of development issues seen in children nowadays. Due to the pandemic, children have lost their precious time of social, educational, physical and emotional growth and learning. We see a lot of issues, such as attention disorder, low vestibular strength, hyperactivity, anxiety and also some cases of neuro-cognitive delays.”
“At Vishesh Jupiter, we’re a team of highly trained paediatric therapists dedicated to helping these children in achieving complex and inter-disciplinary skills (such as thinking, knowing, remembering, judging and problem-solving) while having fun,” said Dr Aditi Neema, consultant paediatrics rehabilitation, Vishesh Jupiter Hospital.
Its physical therapy unit provides neuro-development model-based function-oriented physical therapy which is tailor made for each child independently according to their needs.
