Pediatric Physical Therapy

We love treating kids and providing physiotherapy for their aches, pains, and orthopedic problems, and we are prepared for the unique task of providing therapy for children.

Not only does pediatric rehabilitation help children recover from injuries, but it also helps educate them for the sprains, strains, and physical stresses that may affect them for the rest of their lives.

At Healthfx Physiotherapy, compassionate care and education for injured children involve a close relationship with the entire immediate family.

Therapists are also prepared to patiently work with a child who may not understand why they need therapy.

Can My Child Benefit From Physical Therapy?

We think prevention when we provide Physiotherapy to child, and any reason might affect their ability to live an active and healthy lifestyle.

  • Muscle or joint pain
  • Fitness
  • Delayed development
  • Poor posture
  • Obesity

Also, very treatable through physical therapy are musculoskeletal conditions, including:

  • Scoliosis
  • Fractures
  • Sprains and strains
  • Back pain
  • Surgical recovery
  • Sports Injury

If you have concerns early on that your child may suffer from motor development impairment as they mature, a physiotherapist can provide more information. They will examine your child's muscles and bones and confirm or deny signs of compromised development. Treatment can then start immediately.

Treatment involves strength and range of motion exercises to assure that your child will be able to move through their environment and perform day-to-day tasks easily.

Assessment will be based on coordination, balance, gait, sensory processing, strength, and flexibility.

Whether your child was born with a condition that will affect them long-term, or have injured themselves, we are compassionately here for them to help them continue to live a happy and healthy life.

What if My Child Doesn't Appear to have a problem?

At Healthfx Physiotherapy we teach our clients whether parents or children that the world is made up of billions of unique people.

If your child doesn't present an obvious disability but is having trouble in an area of their life, do not hesitate to get in touch with us. Our physical therapists have a wealth of experience which can help your child develop properly and find their place in the world.

We Are Your Rock

The condition of a child is one of the most difficult things that life can put in your path as a parent or concerned relative.

Our therapists and your family both want your child to have the best childhood and the most opportunities as an adult as they explore the world. Because of this, your therapist at Healthfx Physiotherapy will be your rock.

But never forget while therapists can plot your path, you are the most integral part of your child's therapy and recovery.

The attitude and energy a client brings to the table is a core part of physical therapy, and in pediatric physio, the link between parent and child is just as great. You will build a strong relationship with your child, and your therapist will be there every step of the way.

Your therapist will coach you and your child through outpatient treatment, but your strength will give them strength, and together, you can conquer anything.

Preliminary Consultation for Pediatric Therapy

If you are interested in investing in physical therapy for your child, don't hesitate to contact us and book a preliminary consultation.

At Healthfx Physiotherapy, we believe that it is essential for your child to be given a voice, and during the consultation, we will talk to them directly about the pain and difficulty they may face. After all, they know their body best.

We understand that some children are timider than others, and parents are always welcomed and encouraged to express the challenges of their child as well. Together, we will learn of injury or problem areas and help your child strengthen their joints and prevent pain today and into the future.

During the consultation, we will also be transparent about the pricing of our services, so everyone is on the same page.

Childhood Physiotherapy: Invaluable Protection for the Future

As adults, many of us are painfully aware of the physical challenges that come with aging. Although many of these aches are largely unavoidable, we should strive to avoid them when we can.

For your children, this means addressing physical issues with their joints as quickly as possible. Leaving injuries unchecked will only allow them to worsen and cause your child issues down the road.

Investing in physiotherapy for your child today will help them live a healthy and more mobile life, and this protection is invaluable.

Don't hesitate to contact our office today to learn more about the many benefits of pediatric physiotherapy!

Signs Your Child May Benefit from Physical Therapy

As parents and guardians, we want to give our kids the very best start in life. We do so by making sure they go to school, brush their teeth, eat healthy snacks, and take a bath. However, it can be a bit more challenging to manage when it comes to their physical mobility.

While many children can run and play without much challenge, there are some physical signs to look out for, that could indicate that your child may need physical therapy, including:

  • If the child tends to walk only on their tiptoes
  • If the child places both feet on each stair while walking up or down
  • If the child can't keep up with classmates and peers physically
  • If the child relies on their hands to hold them up while seated
  • Or if the child has bad posture

Children, of course, should also be evaluated in the aftermath of an injury.

Working with Pediatric Specialists

Our physical therapy team is very proud to specialize in pediatrics. Working with children is very different than delivering similar services to adults, and our services reflect these differences.

Children may be fearful of visiting a clinic or talking to a therapist about their aches and pains. That's why we strive to make the process as calm and enjoyable for your child as possible.

We will incorporate fun activities into therapy appointments so that every movement feels like a game. Our experts are also trained to talk to your child about their bodies and teach them how to care for their injuries from home.
