Pediatric Physiotherapy

The health and development of our children is no doubt one of the greatest concerns as a parent. From birth through to adulthood, we are constantly focused on and for their well-being. At Lifemark Neurologic Physiotherapy we understand this, and in doing so, we take a child and family centered approach to all of our treatment plans and sessions. We offer a fun and relaxed environment where your child will be able to build their strength, gross motor skills, and develop through fun play based games.  Our skilled interdisciplinary team is on hand to answer any questions you may have and work together to build an inclusive program specific for each of our clients. 

What is Pediatric Physiotherapy?

Paediatric physiotherapy provides physiotherapy services for children from 0-18yrs of age.  Once a booking has been made, you and your child will take part in a one hour assessment where your therapist will work with your child and you, to determine areas of focus and set specific goals. Our aim is to reach each client’s goals in order to maximize their movement, independence and function through fun interactive activities.  In your follow-up sessions your child's program will build and be modified as your child progresses. 

If you are not certain whether your child needs physiotherapy services, call the office and one of our therapists would be happy to speak with you to further determine next steps.
