No Need to be Seen by Our Physicians First

Shriners Children’s Philadelphia has offered rehabilitation services to its patients for as long as it has existed. Now, it is simpler for parents to find therapy service, regardless of whether their child is seen by a Shriners Children’s physician. Suppose a child is seen by their pediatrician, or other physician, and is prescribed therapy services. In that case, parents and guardians could call directly to get therapy services without seeing one of our Shriners Children’s physicians. Compassionate care, coupled with our collaborative approach to treatment, makes us stand apart as a trusted provider for a child with therapy needs.

“We know families are busy. They are often looking to crowdsource for recommendations for therapy services. I’m glad to let more people know we’re an option. We are able to serve more patients by offering children and teens the opportunity to access our rehab services, as long as the referral falls within our scope of care,” said Mark Bulson, MPT, MHA, rehabilitation director.

What do we provide?

  • One-on-one therapy with a licensed therapist in a pediatric setting
  • Evaluation and care for acute and chronic orthopedic and sports-related conditions
  • Evidence-based return-to-sports testing
  • Post-operative therapy based on surgeon’s protocols
  • Free onsite parking

What should you have ready when calling?

  • Prescription for therapy services
  • Insurance card
  • Medical notes / after-visit summary

We are in-network with many insurance providers and provide all care regardless of the families’ ability to pay.
