With the varied conditions that our babies have, physiotherapy is of huge importance and is a big part of the services we provide. It reduces breathing difficulties, aids pain control, helps restore or maintain physical movement, alleviates discomfort from stiff joints spasms & muscle pains, and helps prevent development of future problems.
Each child’s physio sessions will be individual and tailored to them and our Physiotherapist works with the babies in various different ways. This could be by promoting exercise, encouraging play and movement, providing relaxation techniques such as massage and hydrotherapy and much much more. The overall aim is to try to ensure that the babies’ mobility is as good as possible, to try and help them to maintain the best quality of life as possible, for as long as possible.
