Children’s Physiotherapy: First Steps to getting help

This level of support is for children, young people and families that are experiencing mild or temporary difficulties or are adjusting to life circumstances where getting and acting on advice hasn’t helped to resolve their difficulties or where their difficulties have got worse may benefit from short term evidence based treatments from health services.

Short term assessment and interventions offered from physiotherapy would include:

  • Assessments of need in clinic
  • Exercise programmes
  • Orthotics clinics
  • Access to serial casting at The Great Western Hospital
  • Hydrotherapy groups and referral to self-directed hydrotherapy
