Paediatric Physiotherapy

Each child has an initial assessment lasting about 40-50 minutes. Some of the conditions which we see are :

- Before and after surgery
- Hypermobility (lax ligaments causing loose joints)
- Scoliosis
- Scheuermann’s Kyphosis
- Osgood-Schlatter of the knee
- Spondylolysis/Spondylolithesis

The therapist will discuss the immediate and long term needs of your child with you to make a tailored treatment programme, including:

- muscle strengthening and stretching
- posture, gait and balance training
- improving movement patterns
- promoting development and balance
- training, advice and support for parents and carers
