Services > Paediatric Physiotherapy
At Emma James Physiotherapy we have specialist expertise in working with children and their parents as a whole. Children are not just small adults and our therapists not only have specialist knowledge of conditions affecting children, but also in depth experience of normal and abnormal child development.
The areas of paediatric Physiotherapy that Emma James Physiotherapy specialises in are orthopaedics, neurology, musculoskeletal sporting injuries and postural dysfunction.
Conditions treated include;
- cerebral palsy
- gait anomalies
- chronic pain
- chronic fatigue syndrome
- head injury
- developmental delay
Infants may also benefit from Physiotherapy and we offer treatment for talipes, erb's palsy and head preference (restricted head movement/favours looking one side). Advice is also available regarding gross motor development and the prevention/management of plagiocephaly (flat head). This is applicable for term and pre-term infants.
Adolescents often feel out of place within the paediatric setting, but here at Emma James Physiotherapy we are able to bridge that gap offering an age appropriate assessment and treatment plan but with the option of linking in with the onsite gym and personal training service.
If requested, it is also possible for us to offer educational support for children in terms of supporting their access to the PE curriculum and mobility around school.
It is important to note that children change and develop, gaining control of their environment in response to the experiences they encounter. Therefore if they have sustained an injury, whether during a sporting activity, as result of an accident or injury or the accumulation of a poor posture, Physiotherapy at Emma James Physio will be a positive experience.
We work very closely with the child and parents/guardians to identify short and long term treatment goals and provide a tailor-made service to ensure that these goals are successfully met.
