Paediatrics

We have two extremely experienced Paediatric neuro physiotherapists, based in Yorkshire and Newcastle.

In addition to assessing and treating cerebral palsy (link to the CP section) , we can also provide advice to children who are experiencing difficulties with coordination and movement planning. We are the first to acknowledge how busy these children and families can be, so we deliberately don't get embroiled in multiple treatment sessions! Instead we offer advice as to how the best approaches can be incorporated into the child's day so that they are, in effect, doing lots of physiotherapy just through the process day-to-day activities such as dressing and playing. We also look very carefully at positions that the child is in over 24 hour period, and any equipment that might help to provide postural support. This may be needed to supplement the exercise program.

If you have any concerns about your child's physical development, please talk to your GP in the first instance. The way we often work with children and their families is to see them during the school holidays. We always liaise with any other services involved to ensure a cohesive approach.
