Being the only provider in the State of Nebraska offering Dynamic Movement Orthosis(DMO), we take great pride and care in the children we treat.

Dynamic Movement Orthosis is a new approach to managing abnormal tone a neurological dysfunction. The aim is to improve functional ability through the application of an orthosis designed to meet individual needs and objectives.
