PAEDIATRIC PHYSIOTHERAPY & REHABILITATION

An emphasis of pediatric physiotherapy is on the gross motor function and posture of a child. The role of the physiotherapist apart from the treatment is to assess the child and give parents advice regarding handling, positioning and treatment through play and exercise in a holistic and practical manner.

In pediatric rehabilitation, especially neurological, the therapist is part the team with child's physician, care giver, parents, speech therapist, teacher and anyone else involved in child's life and recovery process in order to deliver optimized care that best suits the child.
