Health2u offers comprehensive pediatric physiotherapy services to children between the ages of 1 month and 19. Our pediatric team comprises of highly experienced physiotherapists who are dedicated to providing fun and entertaining physiotherapy sessions that motivate children to participate in their treatment and exercise.
Traveling to a clinic can be challenging for children and their families, and that is why we offer home-based services that can take place in the child's home or school environment. This not only provides a convenient option for families but also helps children relax and enjoy their physiotherapy sessions in a familiar environment. Home-based services also make it easier for the child to practice the exercises with their parents or helpers between physiotherapy sessions.
In addition to our pediatric physiotherapy services, we also offer occupational therapy and speech and language therapy, providing a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to care. This approach helps to avoid unnecessary traveling to clinics and makes it easier for families to manage the care of their children without having to arrange for child care for their other children.
When one of our pediatric physiotherapists first assesses your baby or child, they will conduct a thorough evaluation of their movement patterns, posture, strength, and tone of the upper and lower limbs, as well as the movement in their joints. This initial assessment is crucial in determining the child's specific needs and developing a personalised treatment plan.
The physiotherapist will begin by taking a detailed medical history and conducting a physical examination, which will involve observing the child's movements, posture, and muscle tone. They will also evaluate the child's motor skills, including their ability to crawl, stand, and walk, as well as their fine motor skills, such as hand and finger movements.
The physiotherapist will then assess the child's joint mobility and range of motion, checking for any stiffness or limitations in movement. They will also evaluate the child's balance and coordination, as well as their ability to perform age-appropriate activities.
The physiotherapist will develop a treatment plan that is based on the specific needs and goals of the child. The plan will include a range of exercises and techniques that are designed to improve the child's movement, strength, and function. The exercises and techniques included in the treatment plan will be selected to be appropriate for the child's age, ensuring that they are enjoyable and engaging.
It is crucial that treatment is age-appropriate and fun to ensure good compliance and integration into the child's daily routine. All our pediatric physiotherapists understand the importance of making the treatment plan enjoyable for the child, ensuring that they are motivated to participate in their treatment and achieve their goals.
There are many causes of children having developmental delay, injury to the brain, orthopaedic or neurological problems. Depending on the individuals’ issues (found in the assessment) there can be problems with mobility, posture, standing, walking, going up stairs, balance and function. The physiotherapist will work on training the large muscles in the body and increasing their strength particularly in the legs, arms and stomach. They will aim to increase the body control and help develop better:
