Paediatric Physiotherapy is the rehabilitation of babies and children aged 0-18 years. We treat children with neurological and developmental problems as well as those with musculoskeletal problems.
The specialist neuro physiotherapist treats children with neurological conditions to improve their physical abilities including mobility, strength, posture and balance.
Children who have developmental problems can also be treated to help them reach their developmental milestones.
As with all our physiotherapy, treatment is based on exercise and hands on treatment but above all we make it fun. A variety of treatment approaches are used to formulate an individualised programme for the child.
Conditions treated include:
• Traumatic Brain Injury
• Cerebral Palsy
• Muscular Dystrophy
• Developmental Delay
Our specialist paediatric physiotherapist has experience in the rehabilitation of post Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy surgery ( SDR). Following SDR surgery in either the USA or UK, it is essential to continue with intensive physiotherapy to:
• increase muscle strength in specific muscle groups
• Improve postural alignment
• Develop isolated movements
• Increase range of movement
• Develop balance
• Increase function and participation
Our physiotherapists will work alongside your community physiotherapist to optimise your potential and reach your goals. Treatment can be arranged at the clinic or in your own home or at school depending on need.
Please contact the clinic for further details or to arrange an assessment.
