Physiotherapy is important for people of any age, but there is a specific branch of physiotherapy for infants, children, and adolescents. This is also known as pediatric physiotherapy

It mainly deals with children aged between 0 to 18 years, and also works towards the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of physical ailments within children. It’s important for every child to stay active during their younger years, and ensure that they can function on their own especially as they grow.

Pediatric Physiotherapists are required when:

Children With Physical Limitations

Often children with mobility limitations require pediatric physiotherapy treatment such as joint massage and manipulation, stretching muscles and therapeutic exercises.

Motor Skill Development Delay 

Children with Motor Skill Development Delay could work well with a physiotherapist in a clinic. The therapist will use various techniques to bring back balance and strengthen the child’s core. 

Younger Athletes 

Physiotherapists can help young athletes prepare for matches and increase their game performance. They can also help reduce the incidence of injuries and to evaluate their condition before and after a game.

Medical Conditions 

Conditions such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy, and so forth require the special care of a physiotherapist.
