Children’s Physiotherapy

At St Agnes Physiotherapy Clinic we offer physiotherapy for children of all ages and abilities. Our paediatric physiotherapists are specially trained to treat children. Michelle and Sara, both work in the NHS and privately treating children of all ages and conditions.
Within the NHS they work at a special school and also as part of the paediatric orthopaedic outpatient musculoskeletal team. Children (0-18 years of age) are not small adults, their brains and bodies are constantly developing and changing. Paediatric
physiotherapy requires specialist training, knowledge and skills specific to children.

Michelle our children’s physiotherapist is a registered member of The Association of Paediatric Chartered Physiotherapists.
We can treat babies, children and teenagers in the comfort of their own home or at one of our clinics. Our paediatric physiotherapist can help children overcome injury or shortterm health conditions or help to manage long-term disabilities.
Our paediatric physiotherapist will use games and techniques appropriate to your child’s age and ability.

At St Agnes Physio clinic your child does not need to have a formal diagnosis to enable our physiotherapists to assess and treat them. Our Physiotherapists have had Bobath training. St Agnes Physiotherapy Clinic will provide a physiotherapy program that can be easily integrated in to family life and taught to schools/nurseries. We are also more than happy to work closely and liaise with your NHS therapists to compliment your therapy and goals. We can also provide ongoing education to parents and carers, who may wish to continue with treatment between sessions.

Physiotherapy for children whilst being hard-work should always be fun for them! “Paediatric physiotherapists should have an understanding of :
• Child development
• Childhood diseases and conditions that may impact on development and wellbeing
• Therapeutic interventions that enable and optimise development and well being
• The need to place the child at the centre of planning
• The impact that having a sick or disabled child has on family life”
