Pediatric physiotherapists help children to achieve their optimal physical development. They have specialist knowledge in the movement, development and conditions that are likely to affect the baby and growing child and treat from 1-day-old babies to adolescents. Treatment may involve soft tissue massage, mobilization, stretching, specific therapeutic exercises and posture education. Because Children are not small adults these therapists encourage children to move to the best of their abilities through play and age appropriate fun and instruction.
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture. CP is the most common motor disability in childhood. Cerebral means having to do with the brain. Palsy means weakness or problems with using the muscles. CP is caused by abnormal brain development or damage to the developing brain that affects a person’s ability to control his or her muscles.
GDD is used when a child takes longer to reach certain development milestones than other children their age. This might include learning to walk or talk, movement skills, learning new things and interacting with others socially and emotionally.
Torticollis is a problem involving the muscles of the neck that causes the head to tilt down.
It is defined as a deformity characterized by complex, malalignment of the foot involving soft and bony structures in the hindfoot, midfoot and forefoot. The deformity affects the structure and position of the foot, presenting as an adductus and cavus (an inward turning) of the midfoot and a varus hindfoot. At the subtalar joint, the foot is held in a fixed equinus, or downward pointing position. The foot affected by clubfoot is shorter, and the calf circumference is less than a normal, unaffected foot. On presentation, the clubfoot deformity is not passively correctable and presents with varying degrees of rigidity.
First of all, physiotherapist will ask some relevant questions, record all of your health history and how the injuries you suffered may have occurred. Next, the Physiotherapist will examine you objectively through observations and Physical Tests based on a specific ‘outcome measure’.
Treatment for Pediatric problems will focus on training the child to have the most optimal level of physical function. Ensuring that the child is able to live independently as much as possible depends on their level of health. The treatment that will be used is ‘manual technique physiotherapy’ and a structured and focused exercise program. In addition, parents or guardians will also be taught the proper way to exercise on children so that the rehabilitation process can always take place even at home.
In consultation, Physiotherapist will explain to the patient and caregiver about the patient’s condition including the cause of the problem the patient is experiencing based on anatomical and physiological knowledge, how to prevent the problem from recurring and the prescription of exercise at home.
