Physiotherapy for children

Teaching children life skills for an independent future

How we can help

As your baby becomes a toddler you may have concerns that their growth or mobility does not appear “normal”.  Many young children have flat feet, toe walking, pigeon toes, bowlegs, and knock-knees. Some of these conditions will self-correct over time, but others may become more severe and require some help.

Abnormalities can present itself in the entire leg or just in certain parts such as the knee, ankle, or foot. Severe walking abnormalities may require continuous physiotherapy and medical attention. A walking abnormality is often known as a gait abnormality and refers to the pattern of walking.

Our method

To help your child with their mobility your physiotherapist will:

  • Assess their range of movement and determine how their walking difficulties impacts their daily functioning
  • Work out a goal on maximising the child’s physical abilities to help them achieve optimal health and wellbeing
  • Examine their mobility and advise you on walking aids
  • Look to see if their strength, balance and coordination is impaired and address this
  • Refer your child to an Occupational Therapist if required
  • Show you stretches and massage techniques that may help relieve your child’s symptoms/pain
  • Give you plenty of advice and guidance as understanding their condition is key
  • Work closely with any other health professionals involved in your child’s care

Our top tips to help your child’s mobility

  • Keep them moving
  • Help them carry out their physiotherapy exercises daily
  • Ensure that if they wear splints they are used as prescribed
  • If they are immobile, keep on top of their day and night time positioning to prevent any risk or pressure sores
