Is Physiotherapy Right For My Child?

When we think about physiotherapy, we too often forget to think about the little ones. Babies, infants, children, and youth of all ages can truly benefit from the services provided by a physiotherapist! Some childhood conditions that could benefit from physiotherapy include: torticollis, neurological conditions, hip dysplasia, development delays, and congenital issues.

Here are just a few other reasons for which you may want to consider paying a visit to a physiotherapist with your child:

Injuries/aches and pains

Kids seem to think they’re indestructible and often like to play as if that were really the case. However, children are just as prone to injuries as adults. In fact, with growth spurts and developing bones (“growing pains”), children and youth are even more at risk of injuring themselves during day-to-day activities. A physiotherapist can help them get back to fun and back to being a kid!

Delayed milestones

If you feel your child is somewhat behind on achieving their next milestone, physiotherapy is here to help. Whether it’s due to conditions such as Down’s syndrome or Cerebral Palsy, or simply a slight delay in their development for a variety of conditions, we can help you create a program of play that’s personally tailored and aimed towards helping your child grow.


If you’ve been told your child has a scoliosis (an abnormal curve in their back) or suspect that that may be the case, physiotherapy may be an appropriate course of action. Through gentle manual techniques, exercises, as well as other recommendations, we aim to reduce the impacts and the progression of changes in the spine.


During sports and while out on the playground, children are prone to head injuries, which can easily turn into concussions. Concussions can dramatically affect your child’s concentration, focus, and ability to succeed in school and a number of other activities.

Injury on the soccer field

Fractures, sprains, and strains

If your child’s ever experienced a fracture, sprain, or strain, you know how badly they’re itching to get back to their regular activities. Physiotherapy can help the process of recovery and also strives to ensure that children won’t reinjure themselves!


Does your child have any of these conditions, or do you think physiotherapy could be of benefit to them? If so, please contact us. We will assess your child’s condition in a fun and friendly way and let you know if physiotherapy is appropriate or recommend any other services that may be helpful!
