Clinical Conditions

Paediatric Physiotherapy covers a broad range of conditions, including but not limited to:

Baby Play

Parents are not always sure how best to position their child, how to encourage tummy time and how to assist their child to progress from floor play, to kneeling and on to walking. If you have concerns with your baby’s progression, Sinéad can advise you on the handling techniques that best optimise their movement patterns.

Developmental concerns

Children develop at different rates. As parents you may become aware that your child is not as physically able as their peers. Often there is no underlying reason and children catch up in their own time. Sometimes, however, muscle imbalance or poor core stability can make it harder for them to achieve their milestones. Sinéad will conduct a thorough assessment to rule out any underlying concerns and advise you how to help your child reach their goals.
