What is Paediatric Neurological Rehabilitation?

Paediatric Neurological Rehabilitation is a specialised branch of physiotherapy focused on addressing motor and functional impairments in children with neurological disorders. These conditions may include cerebral palsy, spina bifida, traumatic brain injuries, and other neurological challenges that impact a child’s movement and overall physical development.

What does paediatric physiotherapy involve?

Task specific functional training:

Targeted exercises to enhance muscle control and coordination, promoting improved movement and functionality.

Gait Training:

Comprehensive programs designed to enhance walking patterns and mobility for a more independent and confident gait.

Orthotics and Splints:

Custom-designed orthotic devices and splints play a crucial role in promoting proper alignment, supporting joints, and improving functional movement. We tailor these solutions to address specific musculoskeletal needs, ensuring comfort and effectiveness. Our team of Physiotherapists are also involved in serial casting for joint repositioning.

Functional Activities:

Customised exercises to improve daily living skills, enabling children to participate more actively in daily routines.

Balance and Coordination:

Specialised interventions to enhance balance and coordination, improving overall motor skills.

Family Training:

Empowering parents and caregivers with the knowledge and skills to support their child’s progress at home, fostering a collaborative approach to rehabilitation.

Progress Tracking:

Regular assessments and goal adjustments to ensure steady progress, with a focus on achieving meaningful milestones.

Our Approach to Paediatric Neurological Rehabilitation

Holistic Care:

We believe in a holistic approach that goes beyond addressing physical limitations. Our physiotherapists consider the emotional and social aspects of a child’s development, creating a well-rounded rehabilitation plan.

Personalised Treatment Plans:

Every child is unique, and so are their needs. Our team designs individualised treatment plans tailored to address specific challenges, ensuring the most effective and targeted interventions.

Family Involvement:

We recognise the vital role families play in a child’s rehabilitation journey. Our approach involves parents and caregivers in therapy sessions, empowering them with the knowledge and skills to support their child’s progress at home.
