Music Therapy for Populations with Orthopedic Handicaps

At Muse for Life in Sandy Springs Atlanta, we give private & group music therapy sessions for individuals with orthopedic handicaps. Orthopedic handicaps which respond well to music therapy include Muscular Dystrophy & Cerebral Palsy. All music therapists at Muse for Life have been trained to have thorough awareness of each disability's specific cause, diagnosis & treatment requirements. All therapists are familiar with techniques for transferring patients from a bed to a chair, or from lying into a sitting position. Therapists are also familiar with physical therapy techniques of limb & muscle manipulation & massage.
