Physical Therapy


Motivating little kids to improve their motor skills

Pediatric Physiotherapy is a specialized branch of Physiotherapy that focuses on children who have delayed development of motor skills. They usually have movement and functional disability, which is tackled with the use of activities and exercises.

This form of therapy aids children with the following challenges:

  • Neurological difficulties: Children with cerebral palsy or a physical disability that directly impacts movement
  • Musculoskeletal difficulties: Growth-related pain, joint pain, etc.
  • Gross motor development difficulties: Delays in crawling, sitting up, and walking
  • Coordination difficulties
  • Balance difficulties

Post assessment, the therapist may recommend only Physiotherapy or a combination of therapies such as Occupational, Speech, Aquatic, and Physiotherapy. Fun is an essential component in this kind of therapy in particular because it motivates children and makes them look forward to the sessions. Children who show interest in therapy tend to benefit the most. Therapists also include parents in the recovery process by recommending exercises and activities for home.
