Muscukoskeletal & Postural Programs

Muscukoskeletal & Postural Programs
We assist children

We assist children who are experiencing problems with their posture or musculoskeletal (muscles and bones) system. Depending on their age and problem, this may result in pain or limited mobility skills.

Specialised Equipment includes

• Splinting and casting to assist your child’s posture and musculoskeletal system

Tracking your child’s progress

Tracking progress helps you and your child remain motivated. Standardised assessments and observations are used to track your child’s posture and musculoskeletal development.

Your child’s program

The assessment process includes a comprehensive examination of your child’s posture and movement difficulties using a range of standardised and non-standardised assessments. Taking time to learn about the concerns and difficulties your child encounters in everyday life also forms an important component of our assessment.
Not all children assessed will require ongoing therapy, in these instances our paediatric physiotherapists are here to give you peace of mind and assure you your child is developing normally. Regular reviews can be arranged as your child matures.
If therapy is required, the program for your child will be fun. Our specialist paediatric physiotherapist will work closely with you and your child to tailor an individual treatment program based on the specific needs of your family. Types of intervention include:
• Challenging physical activities
• Education on positioning, handling, stretches and exercise
• Splinting and casting
• Advice on play and sport activities
