FAQ

Pediatric physiotherapy, also known as pediatric physical therapy, is a specialized branch of physical therapy that focuses on assessing, diagnosing, and providing treatment for infants, children, and adolescents with a wide range of movement and developmental issues.

Pediatric physiotherapy can help with conditions such as developmental delays, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, torticollis, brachial plexus injuries, sports injuries, orthopedic conditions, and neuromuscular disorders.

The primary goal of pediatric physiotherapy is to enhance a child’s physical abilities, promote motor development, improve movement patterns, increase strength and flexibility, and optimize overall functional independence and quality of life.

Pediatric physiotherapy is tailored to the unique needs of growing children. It considers their developmental stages and growth patterns, focusing on age-appropriate interventions to address physical challenges and optimize motor skills.

Pediatric physiotherapy involves a combination of hands-on techniques, exercises, play-based activities, and assistive devices. Treatment plans are customized based on the child’s specific needs, abilities, and goals.

During an assessment, the pediatric physiotherapist evaluates the child’s movement, strength, balance, coordination, posture, and range of motion. They also consider the child’s medical history and any relevant developmental milestones.
