PhysioKids focuses on assisting children to reach physical milestones during key stages of development throughout childhood. Through individualised Physiotherapy programs, children can be assisted in development of the physical and cognitive skills required for learning and growth.

Physiotherapy for older children is also encouraged in the areas of fitness conditioning and exercise prescription. Additionally rehabilitation programs are available, as well as the management of congenital & musculosketetal conditions.

Through early intervention therapy and a proactive approach, Physiotherapy enables children to reach their full physical potential.
