Children’s Physiotherapy: Getting crisis support

This level of support is for children, young people and families that routinely experience crises but struggle to access the help offered at other levels or for whom this help hasn’t made a difference.
Or for children young people and families who are currently unable to benefit from evidence-based support but there remains a significant concern or risk.

For children and young people accessing physiotherapy services who may be in crisis this is likely to relate to pain and support and intervention would be determined on an individual need.

Where families are in crisis due to their caring role, physiotherapy work with the wider social and health teams to plan support that works with the family.
