The Paediatric Physiotherapy Team works with all ages of children from premature babies to sixteen year olds and treats a wide variety of conditions within these age groups.

The specialist services provided include:

  • The ‘Ponseti’ method of treatment for club feet (a technique that corrects congenital clubfoot without invasive surgery)
  • The ‘Joan Lacey’ neurological assessment for premature babies (The gold standard assessment tool for detecting early problems in this vulnerable age group)
  • Combined Podiatry and Physiotherapy assessments
  • Input into the Cystic Fibrosis clinic
  • Evidence based treatment for toe walkers
  • Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy assessment and treatment
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Exercise programmes

We also work closely with the community therapy team to support children with long term needs.
