We support a number of children and young adults at Equinox Physiotherapy. We pride ourselves on providing a happy, engaging and fun environment for children to enjoy their treatment.
Children can be born with certain conditions affecting their daily life. These conditions can affect their developmental growth while others may suffer from an injury. All of these can be very restrictive for children as they grow and develop.
Working with parents and carers is very important to ensure we collectively support a child’s development and movement.
How can Equinox help children and young adults?
Our paediatric team focus specifically on a child’s needs and their developmental requirements. We will assess your child’s movement patterns, monitor skill development, ability, strength, posture, balance and mobility.
We support and treat conditions, illnesses and injuries such as:
- Neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy
- Orthopaedic conditions
- Brain injury
The treatment method is similar to what we offer adults and it’s adapted to suit a child’s age and personal requirements. Families are fully involved and we make joint decisions on treatment. Most importantly we set realistic goals and celebrate every little milestone.
We aim to make children and young adults feel comfortable and safe. There’s a range of activities and alternative therapies they can enjoy as part of their treatment.
