What is Pediatric Physiotherapy?
Pediatric physiotherapy is for children aged 3-16 years old. Physiotherapy for younger children focuses on education, exercises, games, and myofascial release to help your child reach their movement potential. For older children, physiotherapy may be appropriate after a sports injury, a dance injury, for muscle or joint pain, muscle imbalances, poor posture, poor coordination/balance, post fractures, ligament sprains, muscle strains, headaches and concussions.
At Donna Sarna Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation, we can assess and treat a wide variety of orthopaedic conditions. For older children, treatment may look similar to adult treatment with a special focus on the individual child based on their age, development, injury, and demands of their physical sport or hobby.
