Paediatric Physiotherapy

Paediatric Physiotherapy is assessment, treatment and care of babies, children and young people from birth to 18 years old with movement difficulties that impact on physical ( motor) development. It involves promoting their health and well-being with the specialist knowledge and experience of child development and childhood disabilities. Treatment is based on an assessment of the child/ young person’s needs and identified goals. Working in partnership with the child/young person, parents and carers is important within paediatric physiotherapy to enable children and young people to achieve their full potential and participation in life.
