Here’s a closer look at some of our physiotherapy treatments tailored specifically for young clients:

  1.   Developmental Activities
    • We use age-appropriate activities to encourage the development of motor skills such as crawling, walking, jumping, and climbing.
    • These activities are designed to promote strength, balance, coordination, and gross motor skills in infants, toddlers, and young children.


  1.   Strengthening Exercises
    • Specific exercises are prescribed to strengthen muscles that may be weak due to injury, developmental delays, or neurological conditions.
    • Strengthening exercises help improve stability, endurance, and overall functional abilities in children and adolescents.


  1.   Range of Motion Exercises
    • Range of motion exercises are aimed at improving flexibility and joint mobility.
    • These exercises are particularly beneficial for children with conditions such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, or after orthopaedic surgery.


  1.   Balance and Coordination Training
    • Balance and coordination training activities help children improve their ability to maintain equilibrium and perform coordinated movements.
    • These exercises are essential for enhancing mobility, preventing falls, and promoting independence in daily activities.


  1.   Gait Training
    • Gait training involves exercises and activities aimed at improving walking patterns and gait mechanics.
    • Our physiotherapists assess gait abnormalities and develop tailored interventions to optimize walking function and mobility.


  1.   Functional Activities
    • Our physiotherapists incorporate functional activities into therapy sessions to help children practice skills relevant to their daily lives.
    • These activities may include tasks such as dressing, grooming, playing sports, and navigating obstacles.


  1.   Pain Management Techniques
    • Our physiotherapists utilise various modalities and techniques to manage pain in children and adolescents, including heat therapy, cold therapy, massage, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS).


  1.   Parent Education and Home Exercise Programs
    • We believe that parents play a crucial role in their child’s therapy journey. That’s why we provide education and support to parents, equipping them with the knowledge and tools they need to support their child’s progress at home.
