Paediatric physiotherapists offer specialised care for children aged from newborn to the young adult. Paediatric physiotherapists work to improve children’s motor development, strength, range of motion, endurance, balance, and co-ordination. As the body undergoes rapid changes to both the musculoskeletal and nervous systems during these growth years, it is important that each child is treated with an individual approach that is appropriate to their stage of development. This is vastly different from the type of care delivered to adults.
During the consultation, Laura will conduct a thorough interview of the child and/or their family and then use a physical examination to determine the cause of the child’s movement difficulties. Goals will then be developed in consultation with the child and their family, before a specific treatment plan is created depending on the child’s condition.
If you think your child may benefit from an assessment by our paediatric physio, don’t hesitate to contact us at Revive.
