St. Luke's Children's Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Dr. Neufeld provides inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services for children and teens, with a focus on their quality of life to help them gain the ability to function as independently as possible. Our care team includes physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, nurses, social workers, dietitians, and of course, the child and family. We work closely with additional providers, including your child’s primary care provider and other specialists, to ensure comprehensive care. 

Depending on your child’s needs, we’ll help to improve development and function through therapy, medical equipment, and orthotics. We can also perform procedures including nerve blocks (botulinum toxin and phenol injections) and baclofen pump management for patients with spasticity.

Designed to meet the needs of kids, their families, and the people who care for them, this state-of-the-art facility on our downtown Boise campus will more than double our clinical space and improve vital services that keep care close to home. It will bring most of our pediatric specialists and services under one roof, allowing us to provide care more efficiently and easing the burden on parents and kids who will now be able to see several providers in one location in one day.
