Paediatric physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of babies and children with neurological conditions. At Liverpool Neuro Physio our experienced neurological physiotherapists will provide specialised treatment for children between 0 and 18 years old. Our paediatric physiotherapists treat children with a wide range of neurological and developmental problems.
Neurological conditions can include problems with the brain, spinal cord or peripheral nerves. This can have an effect on a child???s physical function including mobility, muscle strength, range of movement and balance. Our specialised neurological physiotherapists specialise in treating these conditions.
Children may also have problems reaching their developmental milestones by the expected age. Developmental milestones are tasks or abilities that most children achieve or learn within a certain age range such as head control, rolling, crawling, walking and talking. Our physiotherapist also specialise in treating these conditions.
At Liverpool Neuro Physio we treat a variety of paediatric neurological conditions including:
Physiotherapy treatment for neurological conditions is aimed at maximising the child???s potential and promoting development to reach developmental milestones. Our physiotherapists will assess the child and provide individualised treatment to reach specific goals. Treatment may include:
Re-educating normal movement patterns
Improving standing and quality of walking
Advice and support for parents and or teachers
Working on fine and gross motor skills
Physiotherapy uses exercises and hands-on treatment to maximise potential. Treatment may include techniques such as:
Bobath Concept (normal movement)
Carr and Shepherd Concept (motor re-learning)
Brunnstrom Approach (synergistic movement)
Treatment can be carried out at our clinic or at the child's home, depending on the child's needs and your preference. Physiotherapy should commence as soon as possible for the child to reach their full potential as quickly as possible. We can start treatment at short notice as we have no waiting list and we work closely with occupational therapists who can provide additional treatment and equipment if necessary.
