At The Physio Clinic we understand how hard it can be to devote time to your own health and well-being with the kids in tow (we have kids too!). We have designed our Kids Room with a one-way viewing window so you can see your kids having fun, for your own piece of mind while receiving treatment.

What is paediatric physiotherapy?

Paediatric Physiotherapists are movement specialists for babies, children and adolescents. They strive to improve a child’s ability to move and optimise their ability to participate in everyday activities. 

How can Paediatric Physiotherapy help your child?

  • Achieving motor milestones, particularly if delayed
