By Pamela Lewis Dolan
For the fourth consecutive year, growth in healthcare spending remained historically low.

Pediatric special needs patients combat the exhausting effects of gravity on a daily basis. Low muscle tone, muscle contractures, skeletal deformities, orthopedic issues and poor circulation are just a few of the dysfunctions these young clients face.
