Children’s physiotherapy

 

We routinely measure height and weight in all children as part of a child’s health assessment.

 

​​​​​​​​​​Paediatric Physiotherapy services are based on a family centred approach where therapists work with you and other team members to develop a comprehensive service for your child.

Paediatric Physiotherapy may provide intervention for children with:

  • Talipes and other positional foot concerns
  • Developmental Hip Dysplasia (DHD)
  • Torticollis
  • Plagiocephly (head preference and concerns with head shape)
  • Delays in achieving motor developmental milestones
  • Concerns with posture and body position
  • Low muscle tone
  • Hypermobility
  • Physical limitations as a result of injury, illness or surgery

Paediatric Physiotherapists provide services which may include:

  • Assessment and review
  • Consultations for schools, pre-schools or childcare centres
  • Home, pre-school or school programmes
  • Individual therapy sessions
  • Group therapy sessions
