Will my child benefit from physiotherapy?

At Bupa Cromwell Hospital, our paediatric physiotherapists provide specialised therapy for all children from birth to 16 years of age, whose parents have concerns about their wellbeing and physical development. Our team provides the highest standard of assessment and care for children who have:

  • neuromuscular problems that affect their mobility and movement
  • injuries and imbalances of the musculoskeletal system

What will physiotherapy involve?

Each child has an initial assessment lasting about an hour. Fun activities and toys are used to make sessions enjoyable for you and your child. Our therapists are Bobath trained and work exclusively with children. The therapist will discuss the immediate and long term needs of your child with you to make a tailored treatment programme, which may include:

  • muscle strengthening and stretching
  • posture, gait and balance training
  • improving movement patterns
  • promoting development and balance
  • training, advice and support for parents and carers
  • coaching parents in massage for infants to promote bonding, development and wellbeing

Our major aim is to help parents to understand their child's therapy needs and to feel confident in addressing these in the child's daily life at home. Parents and children are welcome to come back for an update to support their progress towards the agreed goals.
