How can Physiotherapy help your child?

A Paediatric Physiotherapist offers early intervention for children who may have neurological and developmental delays as well as sensory impairments related to hearing and vision. Physiotherapy also helps children with biomechanical, positional and sports injuries. Some children may present with multiple issues that can be helped by seeing a Paediatric Physiotherapist.

Some examples of common concerns that parents may have include:

  • Premature babies (<36 weeks gestational age) or low birth weight babies (<1500g)
  • Newborn babies having difficulty turning their heads
  • Newborn babies not tolerating tummy time
  • Babies having flat spots on the back or side of their heads, especially after 7 weeks old
  • Babies who have difficulty with rolling, sitting, crawling and walking
  • Toddlers with pigeon toes, bow legs, in-rolling ankles, knock knees.
  • Children who have difficulties with coordination, balance, walking and running
  • Frequent falls, poor balance and coordination
  • Children and teenagers who have any sports related injuries
  • Children with poor posture or children who complain of frequent muscular pain

Some contributing factors to delayed or poor quality motor development are:

    • low muscle tone/strength/endurance
    • poor or under-developed coordination
    • poor or under-developed balance
    • poor or under-developed core/trunk stability
    • less than ideal body/joint mechanics or alignment
    • communication challenges
    • sensory challenges
    • injury – this can include injuries to the musculoskeletal system (i.e. sports injuries) or the neurological system (i.e. traumatic brain injury)
    • the environment.
