Physiotherapy

Our physiotherapists work with children and young people aged 0-19 years.

Phyio with child photoWe provide assessment, therapy and advice for babies, children and young people with physical difficulties from birth up to 19 years old. Our team of physiotherapists have specialist skills, experience and knowledge of childhood development and childhood disability. We work closely with your child, family, other professionals and with nurseries / schools to maximise your child’s physical potential and independence.

Who do we help?

Physio with childWe support the physical needs and development of children and young people up to 19 years old who live in Surrey and have predominantly developmental, neurological and neuromuscular conditions who may also have complex long term medical, social and learning needs.

We work closely with parents and nurseries/schools to ensure they have a good understanding of what they need to do to support your child.

What do we do?

A physiotherapist will assess your child’s needs at home, in clinic, or at nurseries / schools and can offer advice, individual or group sessions, design therapy programmes and provide specialised equipment.

We work on specific agreed targets to help your child achieve their goals.

What can I do to help my child?

You can visit the Therapy Resources section (in the links on the right side of this page) and Resource Finder Tool for further information and advice.

If you are referred, your physiotherapist will work closely with you to give you ideas of activities you can do regularly with your child to help their development and how to incorporate these activities into their day.
