What is a Children's Physiotherapist?

Our Children's (Paediatric) Physiotherapist Kirsteen Chalcraft knows that treatment of physical conditions can have an impact on mental wellbeing so she very much takes a holistic approach to treating your child.  Taking your child's physical and mental wellbeing together, Kirsteen adapts the treatment as your child changes and grows at all times seeks to help your child fulfil their potential.

What conditions can Physio for Children treat?

Kirsteen provides physiotherapy and support to babies, children and young people with the following conditions:

  • Neuro-developmental conditions/syndromes
  • Neuro muscular conditions
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Developmental delay
  • Any problems of movement, coordination or posture
  • Pre and post Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) surgery
  • Acquired brain injury

How does Physio for Children work?

The paediatric sessions are very much based around having fun and Kirsteen works hard to develop a strong rapport with your child so they respond to treatment faster.  Using a mixture of exercises, games, and stretching, Kirsteen will support your child as they build up strength and control in their muscles and movements.  You'll start to see your child enjoy becoming more independent as they grow in confidence.

See our Children's Movement service for more information about how you and your child could benefit from working with Kirsteen.
