What is pediatric Physiotherapy?

Our highly skilled and specialized physiotherapy team will see your infant and child for their initial assessment which will include a full health questionnaire, birth history, complete physical examination, and observations/scoring of pediatric objective measurement tools as required.  We will observe and ensure that your child is meeting his or her developmental milestones and if not we will find out why! Our team’s (Donna and Amanda) combined experience exceeds 30 years in pediatric care! Book your appointment today and trust that your child is truly in the best care.
