What we can do for your child?

We’re very lucky at Bradley Stoke Physio to have such a passionate Paediatric Physiotherapist who is dedicated to improving your child’s quality of life.

When your child lives with cerebral palsy or another neurological condition, or has a developmental delay, Kirsteen Chalcraft knows that the effects are not just physical but emotional as well.  She also knows that the effects are felt by the family as well by as the child.

So Kirsteen’s care and treatment of your child radiates from the focus on increasing your child’s abilities to move and play, through to working with you as a family too. 

Fun and inspiring sessions pitched at the right level, and their joy as they recognise the progress they are making, will motivate your child to achieve even more for themselves.

Kirsteen will share advice and exercises, making sure anything you can do as parents and carers outside of their sessions can be incorporated into family life. 

Both physically and emotionally, your child will feel lighter, more confident and happier.  Together you will delight in their progress as take more and more advantage of the opportunities in family life, with friends, at school and clubs.
