Paediatric Physiotherapy

Children’s (paediatric) physiotherapy is a qualified team providing specialist services to children and young people aged 0-19 to promote health and wellbeing. We put programs together to allow that child or young person to achieve the best function possible. All therapists are registered with the national regulatory body – the health care professionals council (HPCP) which maintains an online register of physiotherapists.
