Children’s physiotherapy is for young patients, from the ages of 0-18 who present with mobility issues. These include issues like difficulty performing activities, musculoskeletal pain or a long term condition that requires regular input.
It is important for children to be treated by a physiotherapist who has paediatric experience to provide engaging therapy programmes. This professional input can also rule out serious injury, limit progression of chronic illensess, improve mobility and reduce pain. So that your child can get back to the “fun stuff” faster.
I had no clue that a physiotherapist could treat my hand pain, I was told my only option was surgery. Now with only two sessions my pain has gone, I can't believe it.
You have given me the strength to get through this knee replacement and the encouragement that I needed to improve every day.
Thanks for making physio fun!
I never thought I would be back playing football with more strength and confidence after my tearing my ligament for the second time. I owe it to you. Thank you very much.
Thank you Becky for all your help and fun we had doing my scoliosis exercises. I will miss you and I promise I will keep doing them!
I've had so much physiotherapy since my brain injury happened but this is the first time I've actually looked forward to it.
Thank you so much for all your help and support after my hip fracture. I am completely pain free now!
Paediatric physiotherapy can be challenging due to children’s difficulty in expressing their pain. An acute sense of observation along with support from parents and carers is how to achieve success. In the same way, treating teenagers also requires a particular approach to allow better communication of issues and anxieties.
Becky has worked as part of an expert paediatric physiotherapist team in the UK, with years of experience in their fields. She also ran the out-patient musculoskeletal service for teenagers which she thoroughly enjoyed. Understanding children is easier when you are still a big kid yourself.
