Conditions

There are many conditions that can affect the physical health and development of children. Some are associated with growth, injury, birth history or genetics. 

We are able to assess these conditions and provide advice or treatment as required. Not all conditions require Physiotherapy and we can determine this via a free telephone consultation or through booking an initial assessment.

Neuro-developmental

Conditions affecting your child's development can cause distress and worry. We are able to determine if this delay will improve with time or requires therapy input to support their development.

We are experienced in the management of children with the following neurological and developmental conditions:

  • Cerebral Palsy

  • Toe walking

  • Genetic diagnoses

  • Down Syndrome

  • Duchennes muscular dystrophy

  • Undiagnosed developmental delay

  • Hydrocephalus

There are many more conditions both diagnosed and undiagnosed. As therapists we are practised in managing the presenting condition whether the child has a confirmed diagnosis or not.

Musculoskeletal and Congenital conditions

Pain and movement disorder as a result of injury or a growth condition can cause distressing impact on the child's ability to attend school and participate in sporting and leisure activities. 

We are experienced in supporting the diagnosis of the symptoms and developing a management plan to rehabilitate your child back to reduce pain and dysfunction.

  • Muscle and soft tissue injury

  • Back pain

  • Post fractures

  • Post orthopaedic surgery

  • Gait disorders

Some children are born with conditions that may affect their early development. We call these congenital conditions​. These conditions respond well to early intervention. Typical conditions seen:

  • Plagiocephaly, brachiocephaly

  • Talipes/ other foot deformities
