What is Paediatric Physiotherapy?

Paediatric physiotherapists recognise that children and young people are not just small adults. They have generic skills as physiotherapists but require additional specialist knowledge and clinical skills to enable safe and effective assessment and treatment of babies, children and young people. They treat a wide range of conditions including developmental delay, respiratory, neurological, neuromuscular and musculoskeletal in differing environments.

Paediatric physiotherapists acknowledge the importance of working in partnership with the child, parents, carers and a wide range of other professionals to maximise a child’s physical abilities and independence. Additionally, they empower parents and carers to feel confident and competent to incorporate physical management strategies into daily life.
