What does a Paediatric/Children's MSK Physio Do/ What can they treat
A Paediatric Physiotherapist is a Specialist Physiotherapist who can assess, diagnosis and provide treatment management to infants, children and young people from birth to 16 years of age.
A children’s Physiotherapist has extensive knowledge and experience in the assessment and treatment of children’s musculoskeletal conditions and understands the importance of applying this knowledge whilst taking into consideration each individual child’s growth, developmental stage and overall goals.
A children’s Physiotherapist will work collaboratively with a child or young person and their family to fully understand their concerns and undertake an in-depth assessment of the area of concern. Following this assessment, they will develop an age-appropriate tailored exercise programme and rehabilitation progress will be closely monitored and adapted as required to ensure each child’s full potential is achieved.
A children’s Physiotherapist can provide Physiotherapy rehabilitation to a wide variety of musculoskeletal paediatric conditions such as:
Joint or muscle pain
Rehabilitation following soft tissue injury, fracture or surgery
Difficulty participating in sports or activities
Concerns with posture or walking patterns
Any other musculoskeletal concerns that you may have
