Many children experience issues of what we call �neuromodulation,� meaning walking, balancing, and movement. At the Neuromodulation Clinic, our multidisciplinary team of specialists evaluates children with any movement disorder, but we commonly see children with cerebral palsy, dystonia, traumatic brain injury, stroke, tumors, and similar conditions. We offer individually tailored care to help children regain or improve function. More about the NeuroModulation Clinic
