Paediatric Physiotherapy is evidence-based therapy committed to optimising a child’s movement. It is achieved by gaining the best muscle and joint function available in the
growing body.

In the growing child, bone growth may outperform muscle growth, and problems can arise that require an understanding of these and other such factors. Unlike adults who have completed their growth period, children may have specific needs relating to their physical development which can benefit from the specialised approach a physiotherapist working in paediatrics can provide.

Physio for Kids is a specialised professional physiotherapy service, experienced in the treatment of babies, children and adolescents. 

You should see one of our paediatric physiotherapists if you
have concerns or questions such as:

  1. -your baby feels 'floppy' or 'stiff' with handling
