Pediatric Physiotherapy


Pediatric physiotherapist assists in early detection of health problems and uses a wide variety of modalities to treat disorders in the pediatric population.

The therapists are specialized in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of infants, children, and adolescents with a variety of congenital, developmental, neuromuscular, skeletal, or acquired disorders/diseases. Treatments focus on improving gross and fine motor skills, balance and coordination, strength and endurance as well as cognitive and sensory processing/integration.

  • Spinal Deformities.(Idiopathic and congenital Scoliosis, Scheuerman’s disease, postural kyphosis, back pain in children)

Pediatric physiotherapy benefits children and their families and their caregivers in a number of ways. The therapy promotes activity and participation in everyday routines and increases functional independence for the child. It’s going to aid in better motor development leading to better mobility. Combined these benefits can aid in the daily caregiving of these children.
