RAPS team

The RAPS program at Children's Mercy is helping children overcome pain.

The Rehabilitation for Amplified Pain Syndromes (RAPS) program is a multidisciplinary service that treats children with severe pain and disability.

The intense all-day therapy program lasts about three weeks. The team behind the program works with patients through daily activities to help restore normal function.

Activities include intensive physical and occupational therapy, relaxation techniques, stress-management training, and music and therapeutic art. 

See a story about a RAPS patient via KSHB 41.
