Paediatrics (Therapy for Kids)

What does a Paediatric Physiotherapist and Osteopath do?

Paediatrics is a clinical area that aims to improve a child’s movement abilities through play, motor learning, movement training, strengthening, exercise, stretching, adapted equipment and therapy programs.

Physiotherapy and Osteopathy for adults and children is very different, due to varying functional, physiological and physiological needs. At Complete Care, we’re highly skilled professional trained in addressing these factors to treat children effectively. We work with you to devise quality programmes to meet your child’s goals and needs.

Complete Care Physiotherapy & Osteopathy is committed to helping people with disability to reach their goals. We work together with all people involved, ensuring the best outcome for our clients. We help our clients to achieve greater independence, improved well-being, and allow them to be involved in the greater community
