Paediatric Physiotherapy

Paediatric physiotherapy, or children’s physiotherapy, requires specialist practitioners who have the specific skills and knowledge to deliver appropriate care.

Those that practice paediatric physiotherapy should have an understanding of:

  • child development
  • childhood diseases and conditions that may impact on development and well being
  • therapeutic interventions that enable and optimise development and well being
  • the need to place the child at the centre of planning
  • the impact that having a sick or disabled child has on family life
  • keeping children safe
  • how to ensure that children and young people make choices
  • how to develop their own skills and practice
  • developing services in line with the Government guidance for improving quality and life chances for children

Do you have any of the following gross motor concerns about your child:

  • weakness in arms, legs or trunk
  • poor balance
  • difficulty walking – tripping, falling, clumsy etc
  • difficulty sitting upright in a chair or cross legged on the floor
  • difficulty ascending or descending stairs or standing on one leg
  • difficulty with throwing, catching or kicking a ball
  • difficulty jumping
  • slower in development to peers

Do bare in mind many of these concerns are perfectly normal however in some cases physiotherapy can assist overcoming any physical issues.
