Paediatric Physiotherapy

What is Paediatric Physiotherapy?

Paediatric physiotherapy is a type of physical therapy that focuses on helping children with disabilities or injuries to improve their mobility, strength and function. It may be used to help children with a wide range of conditions, including developmental delays, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and brain injuries. Paediatric physiotherapists are movement specialists for babies, children and adolescents who help children achieve their maximum physical potential.
