What is Pediatric Physiotherapy?
Pediatric Physiotherapy: As a Pediatric physiotherapists, we help children to achieve their optimal physical development. Our physiotherapists have knowledge in the movement, development and conditions that are likely to affect the baby and growing child and treat from 1-day-old babies to adolescents. Treatment may involve soft tissue massage, mobilization, stretching, specific therapeutic exercises and posture education.
