Physiotherapy

A paediatric physiotherapist has expertise in anatomy and physiology, as well as an expert understanding of child development, and uses this to assess and treat children with a variety of health conditions. Adelaide Paediatrics is pleased to have an excellent team of physiotherapists who work closely together to achieve the best possible outcomes for their patients.

Among other things, the Adelaide Paediatrics physiotherapists deal with gross motor skills and musculoskeletal problems in babies and toddlers. Toddlers should be walking by 18 months of age. If they are getting close to 18 months and are not walking, it may be useful to arrange an assessment. You may also consider seeing the physiotherapist if you are concerned about the way your child moves, walks or runs. A doctor’s referral is not required to see a physiotherapist.

The Adelaide Paediatrics physiotherapists can help children and families with:

  • musculoskeletal pains
  • orthopaedic issues
  • post-surgery rehabilitation
  • child developmental challenges
  • gross motor and coordination issues
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • disability issues
  • cerebral palsy
  • hydrotherapy
