Learning to roll, sit, stand and walk are generally skills that children develop throughout early childhood, but when your child is not reaching the motor milestones as expected or in an unusual manner, you may need the help of a Physiotherapist. Our Physiotherapists have expert knowledge in typical motor development which enables them to recognise the early signs when a baby or child is not developing in a typical pattern.

Child's Physiotherapist Liverpool

Our Physiotherapists are well trained in treating a range of childhood conditions or disabilities. The overall aim of Physiotherapy is to obtain an optimal level of independence by developing or restoring movement, mobility, function, relieving pain and educating and collaborating with families. Our Physiotherapists work with children who have impaired mobility and function from either temporary or permanent symptoms or delays resulting from disease, injury, prematurity, or birth defects.
