What is paediatric physiotherapy?

  1. ​Paediatric physiotherapists have specific training and expertise in a very broad range of paediatric conditions. They acknowledge that children are not small adults. They are different from an anatomical, physiological and psychological perspective. Their goal is to help children to live their life fully by maximising their ability to participate in play, school and home activities.
