Physiotherapists help with your child’s movement. They aim to develop movement skills to achieve an overall improvement in mobility. They work with your child and assist with things like excessive flexibility, poor coordination and delayed motor skills.
More broadly, physiotherapists can also help your child with:
- Flat heads, clicky hips, stiff necks or turned-in feet
- Poor coordination
- Rolling in bed
- Standing up from sitting
- Walking, running, hopping and climbing
- Ball skills.
While outcomes vary depending on each child, physiotherapy can also help increase strength and endurance, manage muscle tightness, joint stiffness, contracture and deformity.
