Paediatric Physiotherapy

The Rehab Physio aims to optimise a child's function as they grow, irrespective of their physical condition. It takes into consideration the impact of growth and growth spurts on the child and uses this knowledge to treat each child accordingly.

Paediatric physiotherapy

We use a mixture of rehabilitation based games and incentive charts to fully engage the child in their therapy.

We aim to achieve this by:

  • Assisting the child to achieve their functional goals
  • Working in partnership with families to educate and empower them to be the best they can be
  • Acknowledging the changing needs of families and individuals along the way

We are flexible and use a mixture of rehabilitation based games and incentive charts to fully engage the child in their therapy so that they can make the most of their sessions.
