  • Posture of the body, spine, hips, knees and feet
  • Toe-walking
  • Balance and coordination
  • Muscle and joint injuries
  • Strength and stamina
  • Babies with a flat spot on their head – this can be due to preferential head turn or tight neck muscles on one side.

Our physiotherapy services for children include:

  • Initial screenings – including team screenings
  • Detailed physical assessment
  • Individual/group therapy programs
  • Consultation and advice for families
  • Parent education
  • Training and advice for service providers
