Our Physiotherapists work with you and your child to join in everyday activities that require movement, balance and co-ordination, including walking, climbing and riding a bike.

Physiotherapy services feature graphic shows a boy kicking, and a boy held by his mother.

What is Physiotherapy for children?

Our Physiotherapists will work with you to find fun ways to support your child’s physical development and movement, such as rolling, sitting, crawling, walking, jumping, hopping and climbing.

Our Physiotherapists can also assist with physical skills such as strength, endurance, walking difficulties, balance or coordination. They will work with you to help your child to develop these skills at home, the local park, pre-school, swimming lessons, preschool and school.

If your child needs specialist equipment to help them get around, join in, or to be more independent, they will assess your child’s needs and help you find the supports that suit your child and family life.
