Pediatric Physiotherapy Complete Care

What happens at an physiotherapy assessment session for children?

We need physiotherapy for children because from behaviour to physiology, children are totally different from adults. A physiotherapist’s role is to assess and treat them. Usually, this is related to musculoskeletal, neurological or cardiorespiratory conditions in children. For instance, our physiotherapists will use exercise, education, and health promotion to treat children.

When it comes to children, parents are heavily involved in their assessment and treatment procedures. So a physiotherapist will ask the parent questions regarding the child’s health history. This helps them determine the problem and most importantly inform the parent about the child’s condition. After their assessment, they will create goals for the child to complete in the physiotherapy session. For example, they will provide information and exercises for their child to do at home and during the treatment.

Your Child’s Assessment

During the assessment, physiotherapists are looking for progress in child’s development that includes motor skills, strength, flexibility and posture. Each client whether they are a child or an adult demands unique needs. Our physiotherapist will create a personalized treatment plan for a child that will work towards any of the following:

  • Posture
  • Movement
  • Strength
  • Endurance
  • Motor skills
  • Coordination
  • Range of Motion
