Physiotherapy for children, aims to provide a family centred, fun method of developing skills. We work with children who have a variety of disabilities or conditions which impact on their functional skills.

Conditions and disabilities that can be helped, may include:

  • Cerebral Palsy & complex disabilities
  • Developmental delay
  • Gait (walking) abnormalities 
  • Motor co-ordination problems
  • Birth problems (talipes, torticollis etc)
  • Neuromuscular conditions
  • Respiratory Conditions (Cystic Fibrosis)
  • Orthopaedic Conditions (planned operations & trauma)
  • Rheumatology (Juvenile Chronic Arthritis)


The treatment may consist of:

  • Hands – on therapy to facilitate normal movement, including the Bobath approach
  • Advice & support on equipment and requirements
  • Home or school exercise programme
  • Advice regarding the need for orthotics
  • Relaxation and activity diaries
