About Baby Physiotherapy

Our Baby Physiotherapy service is tailored towards babies from birth up to age 1. We’re here to support babies that need a bit of extra help with regards to traumatic births, early births, developmental issues, and musculoskeletal issues.

Early intervention is key, which is why we offer this specialist Baby Physiotherapy service separately to toddlers and children. It helps to minimise any undesirable movement patterns from forming, and helps to get on top of existing conditions to minimise their impact as they grow.

Your babies’ brains are growing and adapting so much at this stage that we want to harness that potential and give them the best opportunity to support the development of their milestones as they get older.

Who Baby Physiotherapy is For?

Our Baby Physiotherapy service is aimed at babies from birth to 1 year old. The service benefits a range of conditions including:

  • Traumatic, or early birth
  • Difficulties related to development before birth
  • Torticollis (head turn preference)
  • Plagiocephaly (flattening of the head)
  • Foot abnormalities (e.g.
  • Positional Talipes)
  • Erbs Palsy/Obstetric
  • Brachial Plexus Lesions
  • Muscles feel floppier than they should be or,
  • Resistance when trying to move the limbs
  • Not hitting developmental milestones

The list is not exhaustive, so feel free to get in touch with us about our Baby Physiotherapy service if you have any questions or concerns about your baby.
