We are a team of qualified physiotherapists and technical instructors with specialist interests and knowledge in movement patterns and difficulties with a range of neurological conditions. We work with children who have difficulties with movement, posture and gait. We work across several clinical sites and will see your child for assessment and treatment at one of these.

The physiotherapy team is split into musculoskeletal physiotherapy, which involves assessment and treatment of biomechanical issues such as knee pain, etc. by physiotherapists and podiatrists. The physiotherapy team also consists of neurological physiotherapists who support with children’s gross motor development and provide support to children who have a diagnosis of neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy, etc.

Initial appointment – carried out by a qualified physiotherapist. This can take up to 1 hour and involves a case history taken from yourself and a range of assessments carried out with your child and you in the session.

Therapy intervention – carried out by our specialist team including physiotherapy technicians. Each sessions can be up to 45 minutes dependent on the individual child. During this session strategies will be demonstrated with you and your child to target specific areas of difficulty.
