Some aches and pains are a normal part of growing, whilst others need more attention – knowing the difference between the two needs specialist skills.
In a growing skeleton, the properties of muscles, bones and soft tissues differ to those in adults. Whilst the mechanism of an injury (sports, trauma, posture-related) might be similar, a young person is likely to sustain a different injury. These differences exist in children, adolescents and young adults, until the skeleton has fully matured. With the right input at the right time, we can ensure their recovery is as smooth, safe and swift as possible.
What we can offer
Our physiotherapists understand the physical, emotional and social impact injuries and pain can have on young people. The aim of physiotherapy is the same as when we treat adults: we support your child in their journey back to full function, in a relaxed environment.
Our team of physios will adapt the assessment and treatment for your child or young person to keep them engaged and motivated, liaising with schools, coaches and consultants or GPs when needed.
The most common conditions Children’s physiotherapists treat include:
Early and accurate diagnosis is crucial for this age group.
We have a great network of specialists to work with if your child or teenager needs additional assessment.
Lower age limit
We can routinely see children from age 5 upwards: please call the clinic local to you and speak with one of our team.
Children under the age of 16 will need a parent or guardian present during their initial assessment, they will also need the consent form signed on their behalf.
At subsequent appointments, the parent/guardian may not need to be present if agreed in advance by the treating physiotherapist.
