Our physiotherapy services are designed to support your child in gaining strength and independence for exploring their world. Your baby or child can benefit from physiotherapy if they have a condition that increases their chance of motor skill delay, or makes it difficult for them to move.
Was your baby born pre-term? Was your baby born with congenital heart disease, or have they had surgery or spent a significant period of time in hospital? Has your baby been diagnosed with cerebral palsy or gross motor delay? Does your child have a genetic or neurodevelopmental condition, such as Down Syndrome? Does your baby have plagiocephaly, torticollis, or developmental dysplasia of the hip?
motor skill check up
During this appointment, we will perform an assessment to check for things that may increase the chance of motor skill problems. We perform standardised testing so you can understand exactly where your baby or toddler is up to with their development. Each appointment includes take-home strategies for moving your child’s motor skills to the next level.
Are you worried about how your baby is moving? Has your baby 'missed' one of their motor milestones? Does your baby dislike tummy time or do you feel a bit lost with how to play with your baby? Are you worried that your baby is bottom-shuffling, W-sitting, or moving asymmetrically? Is your toddler walking on their toes?
