Paediatric physiotherapy

About paediatric physiotherapy

Paediatric physiotherapy helps rehabilitate children so that they reach their full potential.  Paediatric physiotherapists are all chartered physiotherapists who are skilled and experienced in the assessment and treatment of children.

We treat children of all ages (birth to 18 years) and all abilities. Some of the services we offer include:

  • treating children with injuries such as broken bones, sprained muscles or ligaments
  • helping children with special needs to develop skills such as rolling, sitting, crawling and walking
  • working with children who have difficulties with balance and coordination
  • treatment of children with chest problems such as cystic fibrosis and asthma
  • treatment of children with joint problems such as arthritis

Referrals

You must be referred by a hospital consultant.

Treatment

We agree treatment goals with you and your child.  We work with and advise your child and their carers on daily management programmes.  We work with other professionals including the Education Department. We may share information about your child to ensure they receive the highest quality of care.

Treatment may include:

  • individual sessions
  • joint sessions with other professionals eg paediatrics, occupational therapists
  • group sessions
  • home therapy programs

Treatment may take place:

  • in the hospital (on Robin Ward, the Special Care Baby Unit, or in the children's outpatients department)
  • at the Child Development Centre at Overdale hospital
  • in special and mainstream schools and nurseries across the Island
  • at home
