Paediatric Conditions

Paediatric Physiotherapy Services in Ashby de la Zouch LeicestershireOur paediatric physiotherapist can provide specialised physiotherapy treatment for children aged between 0 and 18 years that have difficulty with their physical development as a result of neurological and/or developmental problems. 

Neurological conditions can be as a result of problems with the brain, spinal cord or peripheral nerves. Babies and/or children with neurological conditions may have difficulties with their physical functions including mobility, muscle strength, range of movement and balance. 

Paediatric Physiotherapy Treatment Programmes - DerbyshireChildren with developmental problems may have difficulty at reaching his/her developmental milestones by a time or age that is expected. Developmental milestones are tasks most children learn or develop that commonly appear in certain age ranges. For example, head control, rolling, crawling, walking and talking. 

Physiotherapy treatment for children with neurological or developmental problems will help to maximise their potential and promote physical development to reach specific milestones (e.g. rolling, crawling and walking). 

Suzanne has extensive experience in a variety of neurological paediatric conditions including:

  • Cerebral palsy, spina bifida
  • Developmental disorders including delay and motor learning difficulties (DCD)
  • Acquired brain injuries
  • Diseases and injuries of the spinal cord e.g. transverse myelitis, SCI
  • Peripheral nerve injuries 
  • Neuromuscular disorders e.g. dystrophies, myopathies
  • Orthopaedic conditions e.g. talipes, torticollis/plagiocephaly, limb deficiencies, recovery post fracture

Initial assessment of your child will include their development, movement, strength and balance in order to produce a structured treatment programme which may include:

  • Stretching
  • Strengthening
  • Re-educating normal movement patterns 
  • Balance training 
  • Improving standing and quality of walking
  • Advice and support for parents and or teachers 
  • Milestone development 
  • Working on fine and gross motor skills

The treatment approach will depend on your child's individual circumstances in order to provide the best possible treatment. It can be carried out either at the clinic or in your own home or at their school or nursery, depending on your child's needs. Early intervention is of key importance for your child to maximise their potential and can be provided as soon as possible as there are no waiting lists.

Happy Customers


After months suffering with a damaged rotator cuff and a frozen shoulder I came to you, specifically Sarah. After several physio sessions and rigorously following her exercise advice I have finally achieved 99% normality of movement which has enabled me to swim using front crawl. Something I thought I would never be able to do again. Thank you so much.quote_close
