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
