Babies and children are not little adults, their brains and bodies unlike adults are still developing, and it is important to have expert knowledge of normal developmental stages from conception to birth, and from birth to adolescent in order to assess and treat a child appropriately when there is a deviation from typical development. Paediatric Physiotherapists are experts in diagnosing and treating developmental musculoskeletal imbalances, neurological impairment, cardiorespiratory conditions, and movement and coordination dysfunction in the paediatric population.
The aim of Paediatric Physiotherapy is to promote optimal gross motor development, minimize the effects of physical impairments, prevent secondary complications and ensure that your child has every opportunity to achieve walking and to be able to participate in life with friends and family. Paediatric Physiotherapy unlike Physiotherapy for adults requires you to be committed and participate with the treatment program in order to achieve optimal outcomes for your child. My Favourite Physio is an Approved Physiotherapy Provider of the Better Start for Children with Disability Initiative.
