Physiotherapy for Children and Young People

Physiotherapy can help in the management and development of movement skills. Children may require physiotherapy for a range of different movement problems which may occur from a short-term condition e.g. following a fracture, or from a long-term illness or disability e.g. Cerebral Palsy. Physiotherapists use a range of approaches, including exercise programs, postural management equipment, bespoke orthotics, walking aids and other specialist equipment.
