Physiotherapy

Children’s Physiotherapy is a specialised area of practice that we offer at South West Kids Clinic. Our Physiotherapists have undergone extensive training to deliver the latest technologies in providing treatment to children experiencing difficulties in many areas of child development and disability. Our Physiotherapists provide a comprehensive range of therapies on babies through to adolescents.

Each Physiotherapy appointment uses a combination of novelty play and fun to ensure that each child improves in the areas of balance and coordination, strength and endurance as well as motor skill development (rolling, sitting, crawling, walking).
