Our Specialist Paediatric Physiotherapists are here to care for and promote the health and wellbeing of your children from babies (from birth) to young teens.
At Faye Pattison Physiotherapy, our Chelmsford based Paediatric Physiotherapists have the additional knowledge and expertise for the treatment and care of babies, children and young teens from birth to 14 years old. Our Paediatric physiotherapists promote the health and wellbeing of children; deal with child development and specific childhood disabilities.
Depending on your problem or injury, your physiotherapist may recommend various specialists within our practice or refer you to a more suitable specialist outside our clinic if deemed necessary. Our in house team includes soft tissue therapists, massage therapist, nutritional therapists, woman’s health specialists, sports massage therapists and biomechanical specialists (who prescribe custom orthotics) who are all available to compliment the individual needs of our clients.
On your initial assessment with our specially trained and friendly therapist, we will ask you several questions about your child, their development and your current concerns. Following this, your therapist will carry out a physical examination. Depending on the age of your child, this is often by observing how your child plays and moves. From this, your therapist will analyse the assessment findings and provide you with recommendations and a plan. It is often necessary for the child/young person to be undressed for a physical examination; you may wish to bring shorts and a vest. Your therapist will use a variety of informal and formal assessment tools depending on how your child presents and the specific reason you are seeking our expertise.
