Service description:
The Children’s Physiotherapy Service is provided to children who require physiotherapy assessment, treatment, and management for both long and short-term conditions.

Physiotherapy focuses on helping a child’s physical development, specifically their gross motor skills (such as sitting, standing, walking, and jumping) as well as their difficulties with balance and co-ordination.

The physiotherapists also assess for specialised equipment (e.g. walking aids or standing frames) as required, to assist with the child’s developmental abilities.

Physiotherapists work closely with the child’s parents or carers as well as health and education professionals to ensure the child’s needs are met appropriately.

The Children’s Physiotherapy Service provides paediatric physiotherapy for children and young people aged 0-19 living in the south of the county.
