How physiotherapy can help a wide range of conditions for a variety of children 

Developmental delay

If your baby is behind on meeting their gross motor milestones like rolling over, sitting up, crawling, standing, walking, etc. then physiotherapy can help.  There are many reasons why a child is behind in their developmental milestones and part of the assessment will be to try and find out why.  Research has shown that early intervention is always best despite the common belief of wait and see.

Balance, co-ordination and core stability

Do you notice that your child can't keep up with other children their age, perhaps they fall over a lot or have difficulty completing a task that involves using both hands?  If so, then you have come to the right place!  Don't let core stability, coordination, and balance problems hold your child back.  A physiotherapy assessment can help find out where the missing blocks are and work with you and your child to improve these key skills which, in turn, will help them to feel more confident and play better! .

Low tone

Have you been told your child has low muscle tone but you're not really sure what that means or what do to next? For babies this may mean they are delayed in their gross motor milestones such a rolling over, crawling, standing and walking. Toddlers may have difficulties with balance and feel more tired easily. School age children may have a harder time keeping up with their peers as the demands of school increase.  Physiotherapy can help you as a parent to understand what low tone is and what impact it may have on your child.

Other conditions

Physiotherapy can also assess and treat children with conditions such as torticollis, toe walking, musculoskeletal pain, injuries, and other neurological conditions.  However, your child does not need a diagnosis to come to physiotherapy.  If you are concerned about the way your child is moving, or their posture or feel they are not able to do what their peers are able to do then please book a free discovery phone call to find out if this service is appropriate for your child. 

When your child develops good quality of movement you will see improvements in their breathing pattern, posture, co-ordination, balance, core stability, attention, emotional regulation and play.
