How can a Physiotherapist help?
Gross motor skills such as standing, sitting, walking as well as improving strength, endurance and flexibility are some of the issues addressed by a physiotherapist. They can also help alleviate pain arising from birth defects, disease, aging, injury & illness.
Our Physiotherapists can work in conjunction with other modalities or parents/family members to help encourage the skills required at home to support their priority needs
