Our musculoskeletal outpatient service offers physiotherapy assessment and treatment to children from 0 to 16 years of age. Our after-school appointments mean you can fit in a visit around your child’s needs.
Our specialist paediatric physiotherapists cover a wide range of paediatric musculosekeletal issues in children. We treat babies with obstetric brachial plexus palsy (OBPP), plagiocephaly, and torticollis and young children with developmental presentations and gait concerns, such as in-toeing. Our physiotherapists treat older children and teenagers following injuries such as fractures, as well as biomechanical conditions like knee pain, back pain and hypermobility. The team is also experienced in treating rheumatological conditions such as juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA).
Your physiotherapist will complete an initial assessment with you and your child. They will ask about the presenting problem, your child’s birth and developmental history, any other medical conditions and their hobbies and interests. Afterwards, there’ll be a physical examination to assess the relevant joints and muscles, which may include carrying out a number of tasks such as walking, squatting and balancing.
From this initial assessment, your physiotherapist will talk about the cause and advise a treatment programme where necessary. This may include advice, education and home exercises. They will organise a suitable review appointment, which will depend on the presenting condition.
