Physiotherapy Services

Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function following injury or surgery, relieve pain and help prevent or limit physical disabilities and improve developmental delay.

 

By using a number of different approaches and techniques, a physiotherapist can help a child overcome an injury, rehabilitate following surgery or short term health problems or help manage long term disability. They can also advise on splinting, equipment and help with problems that you may be experiencing at home or at school.
