What to Expect At Your Visit
Perhaps you are worried that your child is not achieving their developmental milestones at the correct age, perhaps they are not keeping up with his/her peers, maybe they slouch at the table, maybe they avoid being outdoors and active, maybe they struggle with jumping/hopping/standing on one leg/monkey bars or maybe they have a diagnosis from another health professional. If you have any of the above concerns, I am here to help. Paediatric Physiotherapy is a journey whereby children are encouraged to reach their optimal potential and reach their appropriate developmental milestones. I have the skills and experience to help your child reach their developmental goals whilst having fun and gaining confidence.
My treatment approach is premised upon creating a comfortable and safe environment, where children are challenged to reach their goals whilst having fun. Families play an integral part in the therapy process, and teachers and other therapists are involved throughout as required. Ultimately, my purpose is to ensure that every child I treat is able to reach their optimal potential, and as a result are more efficient, independent, and confident when performing their functional tasks/activities.
I treat children from 0-16 years of age. Early intervention is fundamental as it provides the child with the best opportunity to improve. Physiotherapy treatment can begin at any age, but the earlier it starts, the quicker progress is made, and the easier it is to gain the best possible outcome.
