Paediatric Physiotherapy


There are numerous childhood conditions that can affect a child's development. They can be minor or severe, short or long term and can affect a child's ability to move and function. Children learn through play, movement and exploration of their environment. We believe in making therapy a positive experience for the child and hence play is often incorporated into holistic treatments and therapy is continually adapted to the child's needs. Our Paediatric Physiotherapist is specially trained to work with children and will ensure that parents and family are an essential and integral part of treatment.Our initial consultation involves assessment and treatment including individual programs produced for your child's condition.
