How can physiotherapy help your child?
In our centre, our Physiotherapists work with infants and children up to 15 years old. Our aim is to improve the quality of life of your child through physical intervention, and advice and support to parents.

Our Physiotherapists handle conditions that can affect the motor development and movement of the child.

These include:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Developmental delay (e.g. delay in motor skills such as attaining head control, sitting, rolling, crawling, standing, walking, etc)
  • Seizures
  • Syndromes and other genetic disorders (e.g. Down Syndrome, Prada Willi Syndrome)
  • Muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy
  • Brachial plexus lesions
  • Premature babies (Early Intervention Programs)
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Postural problems (e.g. Torticolllis, CTEV, CTCV)
  • Developmental Coordination Disorder (e.g. Clumsy, frequent falls)

We work closely with the family, caregivers, doctors and other health care professionals working with your child. For the best outcome, early referral is important.

What happens during Physiotherapy?
Our physiotherapy sessions involve lots of movements, play and fun exercises to help optimize your child’s physical abilities and build their confidence. Parents/ caregivers are encouraged to participate in the sessions as parental involvement is crucial in the child’s progress.

During the initial assessment, the physiotherapist conducts an interview with the parents/ caregivers to gain a better understanding of your child’s condition and routine. We will observe and assess your child in your presence to analyze his/ her current abilities and needs so as to customize a suitable intervention program for him/ her.

Our intervention involves neuro-developmental techniques (NDT) and motor learning strategies.

Importance of Home Program
Home program is tailored to the needs of your child. For a better outcome, it is important to carry over the home program that your Physiotherapist has prescribed to optimize the development of your child.
