Leap Beyond Therapy™ Programs
At leap beyond therapy, we offer traditional, modified and intense physical therapy
programs. We are proud to be a goal-oriented therapy clinic that provides individualized
programs to maximize your child’s potential.
Below is a brief overview of each program. However, it is extremely important for
you to realize that each program, and session, is tailored to your child’s abilities
and needs, which will be evaluated at your consultation prior to beginning therapy.
Intense therapy: a three-week commitment, 5 days a week for 3 hour sessions.
Principal: short bursts of physical therapy to improve current skills and target
new skills with the use of the
therasuit method and the universal exercise unit.
This therapy is designed to retrain the brain and body
through repitiion of movement
patterns and other exercises, to work more effectively.
Indications: cerebral palsy,
developmental delays, traumatic brain injury, cva,
spina bifida, and other neurological disorders.
Contradictions: children under the age of three, severe scoliosis, any fixed contractures.
Intensive therapy is an individualized three-week session consisting of physical
therapy three hours a day, five days a week. This intensity allows the child to
strengthen the muscles they need to increase function faster than traditional therapy.
A licensed physical therapist certified in the Therasuit method will evaluate your
child and design a customized program to accomplish specific goals. A typical day
includes warm-up, massage, and stretching; strengthening and muscle isolation using
weights for resistance; proprioceptive and vestibular work using the Spider; and
functional work on sitting, standing, walking, and transitions. At the completion
of your child's three-week session, you will receive a home program with color photos,
easy instructions, and training to maintain your child's progress.
Children 3 years old or above with neuromuscular issues due to diagnoses such as
cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, spina bifada, and
Rett syndrome are usually good candidates for intensive therapy. Other diagnoses
that are treatable include autism spectrum disorders and down syndrome. Precautions
are taken for any medical or orthopedic issues such as hip subluxation.
You can schedule an evaluation to determine if your child is a candidate for intensive
therapy and/or to gain information for a possible strengthening or intense therapy

"Referrals and research led us to Leap Beyond Therapy....After completing the program,
the results have been impressive. Kyle is mobile! The milestones he has achieved
so far at Leap Beyond Therapy have given him greater confidence and a higher self-esteem.
Not only did we find an excellent therapy program but we found a community that
will help Kyle reach his goals for years to come." Caren and Walt Wiegand
"Sidney can now walk short distances with someone just holding onto her arm. We
can not believe that Sidney is even trying to walk up the stairs. Sidney is able
to stand up by herself from the floor. This is a girl that could only take a just
a few steps when we started. Thank you Leap Beyond Therapy for making such a difference
in our family's life. We can never thank you enough for your support and encouragement.
We now believe that anything is possible with lots of hard work, and some help from
our 'friends'" The Barnes
"I was impressed with how organized the program was. By the third week of intense
therapy, Shelby was able to stand in her gait trainer. The therapist and I both
wanted to cry! Before intense PT, Shelby would have crumpled to the floor in the
trainer or bucked in protest. The people at Leap Beyond Therapy are dedicated to
seeing their clients reach their full potential." Debbie Moore
