Term 1 kids Flex-ability group!
Ocean Kids Physiotherapists are thrilled to be hosting our first ever Children's Hypermobility Group - Flex-Ability!
Our experienced Paediatric Physiotherapists are very passionate about raising awareness
about hypermobility and EDS in children. In Australian children, approximatley 26% of girls and 11% of boys have
joint hypermobility with a beighton score of 6 or more. (Morris et.al 2016). Some children with joint hypermobility may have difficulties with strength, endurance, coordination, motor skills and fatigue along with autonomic nervous system issues and mental health issues. Our first group aims to connect families and children with joint hypermobility, to form friendships and support systems. Flex-Ability, as run by our Physiotherapists will enable children to participate in weekly, goal based sessions, focusing on building and improving strength, balance, body awareness and confidence
in a FUN and supportive environment!
