Padiatric Physio 1.png

The basic definition of paediatric (childrens) physiotherapy is the provision of evaluative, habilitation and rehabilitation services to children, from birth to 18 years.

 

In reality paediatric physiotherapy is a dynamic field of varied clinical practice that is focused on improving the health, well-being & participation of children as also their families, in all aspects of life.

Children have many intricate phases of physical, cognitive & emotional development. Therefore various age & development stages require various expertise and experience from specialist Physiotherapsists (just as with other health professions).

This diversity in specialism from Physiotherapists is also then redivided dependant upon the child in questions condition i.e. the differences in treating a paediatric patient with a significant neurological condition or with a sports injury.

Musculo-skeletal Physiotherapy with younger children requires imaginatve & engaging input grounded in experienced, clinical knowledge 

Growth stages vary hugely with some teenagers developed to a pont where they are alread young men & women in appearance.

Therapists at HTC are level 3 Child protection certificated to promote awareness & knowledge for safeguarding our youngsters.

We ask that all minors attending for treatment at our centre are accompanied by a parent or chaperone

At HTC we specialise in Musculo-skeletal & Orthopaedic conditions and are happy to see children from the ages of

7 to 17 Years old

Dependant upon the condition in question we may also see children of this age group for respiratory condtions

We will also consider seeing a child aged between

5 & 10 Years old 

This will be dependant upon the condtion in question as also the childs current growth development.

If you are unsure as to the appropriateness for your child to attend our therapy unit then please contact us & we will be more than happy to answer your queries.

Should we feel a more specialised appropriate colleague is required then we will endeavour to assist you in making contact with them.
