What is Paediatric Physiotherapy?

Neonates, infants, children and adolescents can all benefit from physiotherapy.   Physiotherapists play a role in the early detection and treatment of health problems including developmental delays as a result of various diseases and disorders.  Paediatric physiotherapists work with children and families to maximize participation at school, home and recreational activities.

For more detailed information it is highly recommended that you visit the homepage of the Paediatric Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.

Physio Roots has made an effort to identify clinics and individuals who market themselves in paediatrics. Please check with the clinic to ensure they’re comfortable working with your child before booking an appointment.
