Children at all stages of growth and development may come across obstacles to their health and advancement. A Paediatric Physio approach is often an important part of the process in managing these issues. At Core Physiotherapy and Pilates Studio, our Paediatric Physiotherapists take a logical, child centred approach to help children and parents get the best possible outcomes.
The Core Physiotherapy and Pilates Studio approach involves:
Our Physiotherapists have extensive experience in helping children with the following disorders:
The treatment of children is based upon specific problems that have developed within various body systems. This will vary according to parental concerns, expectations and the therapist’s goal for the child. Our Physiotherapists will create a program tailored around these requirements.
The most popular approach when treating children is Neurodevelopmental Therapy. This is a progressive ‘hands-on’ therapeutic approach for children with central nervous system difficulties, affecting their posture and movement control. The purpose of NDT is for children to obtain the highest functional participation that they can during their daily activities.
The Neurodevelopmental Approach is based upon the International Classification of Functioning Model (ICF). The International Classification of Functioning Model is the World Health Organisation’s framework for measuring health and disability at both a clinical and environmental level.
The ICF was approved for use by the World Health Assembly in 2001, after thorough testing globally that included people with various disabilities from a range of relevant disciplines. The ICF integrates the dominant models of disability. Acknowledging the impact of environmental factors upon the development of disability and the importance of related health conditions and their effects.
Short term and long-term goals are formed while keeping the expectations and concerns of the parents along with the current functional status of the child.
We focus on bringing the best out of every child through play and help achieve their goals by making them functionally as independent as possible.
