PHYSIOTHERAPY

What is it?

Paediatric physiotherapy is an area of physiotherapy to help children to achieve their optimal physical development. Paediatric physiotherapists have specialist knowledge in the movement, development and conditions that are likely to affect the baby and growing child and treat from 1-day-old babies to adolescents.

What to expect?

Neurodevelopmental assessment and individualized intervention until about 2 years of age for premature infants/ infants at risk of developmental delay. Continuous family training to maximize infant’s progress towards developmental milestones. Beyond infancy our Physios also treat other neurological conditions in children and adolescence such as Cerebral Palsy and Spina Bifida.

As well as neurological conditions, we also assess and treat children and adolescents, who have sports injuries, muscle or bone issues, or who are dealing with pain. Treatment may involve soft tissue massage, mobilisation, stretching, specific therapeutic exercises and posture education.

WHAT CAN CRANIAL OSTEOPATHY HELP TO TREAT?

Osteopathy is a gentle, safe form of treatment that is particularly effective for babies as well as children.

The birth of a baby can be one of the most stressful events of its life; this process, along with the positioning during development inside the womb, can inflict stresses and strains on a baby’s body. If these strain patterns remain unresolved, they may result in discomfort for both baby and mum and possibly long term affect the development of the baby.

Paediatric osteopaths in combination with a detailed case history use a non-invasive, gentle approach to treatment. This is often called cranial sacral therapy and is aimed to release any restrictions found within a child’s body.
