Child Physiotherapy Treatments

Is your child suffering from pain, injury or disability? Are you worried they can’t sit up on their own, aren’t crawling or starting to walk yet? Are you concerned about their development? Are they struggling at school and keeping up with their peers? Is your child double jointed or extra flexible or starting to walk on their toes only? Has your child injured themselves playing sport, or have they just had a growth spurt? Bring them to Physio Group South-West and give yourself some peace of mind knowing we will give you advice and support to help your child grow. Sometimes this may include referring you to another health professional. We are able to help with conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, Brachial Plexus Palsy, torticollis (your baby only turns their head to one side), developmental delay, hypermobility, Downs Syndrome and other congenital disorders. We believe in a play-based approach to paediatric therapy, which means we work our treatment and exercises into their play, to make it engaging and functional. For kids, play is how they develop their social and physical skills – sitting, crawling, walking, jumping, running, coordination, picking up objects, feeding themselves, writing etc.

We can also screen for scoliosis and other postural conditions and can help to improve poor posture, back pain and growing pains.

Funding options are available, including Better Start.
