We’re passionate about optimising our child patients’ physical function as they grow and develop, whatever their physical condition. Each child is different, they develop at different rates and different times, so each of our treatment plans is totally tailored to the individual.
We work with families to help them understand the process we’re planning and implementing, so that everyone is onboard with their child’s plan and fully able to support them. And obviously, we’re there for children too, every step of the way, helping them to achieve their function goals, and acknowledging the changing needs of families and individuals as time goes by.
Each child has their own character, so we tailor treatment programmes to individual personalities as much as to physical conditions. There are all kinds of rehabilitation games, and things like incentive charts that engage the child with their therapy, and ensure they gain the most from their sessions.
We’re also experts in assessing and measuring for lycra garments – a proven way to give support and stability to a part of the body to enhance normal movement. Things like lycra leggings, short, socks and body suits help improve stability, posture, dynamic balance and muscle tone when combined with physiotherapy.
Our children’s services include:
- Home visits
- School service
- Clinic based
- One to one sessions
- Aquatic physiotherapy
- Lycra splinting clinic
- Functional electrical stimulation (FES)
