Physiotherapists in paediatrics provide therapeutic intervention within the context of the developing child. They focus on supporting neurological, cardio-respiratory and musculoskeletal health to assess and treat the diverse needs of your child or young person.
As part of your visit a comprehensive assessment will be completed to evaluate a young person’s skills for identified areas of concerns including musculoskeletal posture, movement, strength and endurance; gross and fine motor skills; sensory issues, balance and co-ordination and functional activities of daily living.
Our Physiotherapists have the skills and training to provide the best assessment and therapy to your child or adolescent to help them gain the necessary skills for participation and independence in the activities of their daily lives, such as socialising, playing, learning and self-care.
Kids at Play Therapy Service Physiotherapists utilise a range of play-based therapeutic approaches to engage clients and make therapy fun. We believe in continuing improving the independence of all our clients, through a client and family-centred approached. Our Physiotherapists work collaboratively with other therapists within the practice as well as other stakeholders and professionals involved with the family and young person.
