Paediatric physiotherapy

Managing children with a range of conditions affecting their physical development, mobility and ability to participate in activities of everyday life



What is Paediatric Physiotherapy?

Paediatric physiotherapists are therapists who have expertise and skills in managing children with a range of conditions affecting their physical development, mobility and ability to participate in activities of everyday life.

Paediatric physiotherapists offer a range of assessment, treatment and programs to children aged from the new-born to the young adult.

From the initial assessment, the physiotherapist will advise you of the most appropriate management plan for your child’s needs.

The physiotherapist interviews children and their families, and uses physical examinations to diagnose the source of the child’s movement difficulties. Therapists work to improve children’s motor development, strength, range of motion, endurance, gait difficulties, balance, coordination, heart and lung endurance, and delayed motor development.

Goals are developed in consultation both child and family, and progress is evaluated each visit. Treatment approaches are specific depending on the child’s condition. This might include exercises, gait retraining, neurodevelopmental therapy, splinting and positioning, cardiorespiratory intervention and education.

The physiotherapist may also recommend the involvement of other specialties. When required we will arrange for referral to other health professionals for consultation.

Paediatric physiotherapists manage a broad range of conditions affecting children.
