ONCE UPON A GENE – EPISODE 136

The Value of Intensive Therapy for Kids with Disabilities with Jessie Cline and Erin Garrison of Climb Intensive Pediatric Therapy

Jessie Cline is the Founder of Climb Intensive Pediatric Therapy and Erin Garrison is a Physical Therapist. Sometimes when you need something done (or always in the world of rare disease) you have to do it yourself. Together, Jessie and Erin have joined forces to offer physical therapy and dynamic movement intervention (DMI) services to children to help them reach therapeutic goals quicker than through typical therapeutic interventions. Climb Intensive Pediatric Therapy is the first and only pediatric therapy clinic in Tennessee to offer DMI therapy services.

EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS

What inspired you to take Crew’s early intervention therapy to an intensive level of therapy?

The early intervention model is to train, educate and equip parents.Crew was responsive to the therapy he was receiving and needed the intensive therapy to jump start and boost his therapy progress so we could further build on that.

What is the science behind intensive therapy?

Intensive therapy is two to three hours of therapy everyday, five days a week, for several weeks at a time. When you work through therapy at that intense level, while it’s hard, you see more drastic results sooner. The brain is challenged by repetition and stimulated to open up new neuro pathways.

What inspired you to open Climb Intensive Pediatric Therapy?

When I was with Crew at LEAP Pediatric Physical Therapy, there was a sense of community and it was a safe space to allow kids to interact. When I returned to Tennessee, Erin and I began collaborating on how we could create that same community here with the best experience and care for kids and their parents.

What services does Climb Intensive Pediatric Therapy offer?

We currently offer DMI therapy services and physical therapy. We’re hoping to also add speech therapy, feeding therapy and occupational therapy services soon.
