Paediatric Physiotherapy

Camden
Add to CPD

The children’s physiotherapy service provides assessment, advice and treatment to children and young people from birth up to 18 years old. We provide the service in community and hospital settings, working closely with the child/young person and family to ensure family centred care, and the wider multi-disciplinary team.

Reasons for referral could include:

  • musculoskeletal problems eg sports injuries, strains, sprains and recovery if movement is lost after a fracture
  • physical disabilities related to neurological and neuromuscular conditions eg cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy
  • difficulties associated with balance and coordination 
  • delay in acquiring motor skills
  • orthopaedic and rheumatological conditions eg childhood arthritis, structural talipes equinovarus
  • rehabilitation after prolonged illness
  • congenital disorders e.g. talipes, torticollis, plagiocephaly, spina bifida and Erbs palsy
  • medical conditions affecting movement
  • down syndrome
