What is Paediatric Physiotherapy?

Therapy-Stars-header-logoTherapy Stars offers Paediatric Physiotherapy…but what is it?

Paediatric physiotherapists are physiotherapists who have experience and training to specifically treat children and teenagers. All physiotherapists have general training during their degree, and can then specialise in different areas, dependent on their interests, experience and developing skills.

Physiotherapists who work with children can be found in hospitals, in the community and in private practice. They can help children with a variety of symptoms, injuries, conditions and illnesses.

Paediatric physiotherapists will have a solid understanding of child development and growth, as this is a major difference between treating adults and children. They will also have knowledge of treatment methods that aim to maximise a child’s function and potential, whilst appreciating that childhood is a time for fun and enjoyment.
