Physiotherapy for Children

Physiotherapy for Children

Physiotherapy for children is care for infants right through to children of adolescent years. These are growth years when the body undergoes significant changes to bones, muscles, tendons and the nervous system, so it’s especially important that we treat injuries with a different approach to how we treat adults.

Conditions that we treat

For babies

  •     plagiocephaly (flattening of the head, usually to one side)
  •     torticollis (stiffness of the neck)
  •     issues with hips or feet
  •     delay in development such as slow to roll, crawl or walk and particularly if your child is not showing signs of walking between 9-15 months

For children

  •     delay in development
  •     foot, knee, hip alignment issues such as
  •     in-toeing, out-toeing, knock knee or bowed legs
  •     toe walking
  •     knee pain
  •     young athlete concerns
  •     scoliosis (curvature of the spine)

We can be part of a team that can assist in the management of:

  •     cerebal palsy
  •     autism spectrum disorders, including Asperger’s syndrome
  •     Down’s syndrome
  •     neuromuscular diseases
  •     visual or hearing disorders
