Why Paediatric Physiotherapy?
A Paediatric Physiotherapist is the first person your Paediatrician, GP or Maternal Child Health Nurse will refer you to if they have any concerns about your child's physical development.
Paediatric Physiotherapists are your 'go to' for developmental assessments and advice.
Our Paediatric Physiotherapists are specialists in enhancing child global development, including motor milestones,
sensory systems, movement and play skills.
We understand how children learn, move and play.
At every age and every stage, we know what's normal and expected,
