Physio for Kids is specialized in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of infants, toddlers, and children with a variety of developmental, neuromuscular, congenital, or acquired disorders and injuries.
Therapy sessions are individualized and tailored to address the needs of the child and families.
Our treatments focus on improving mobility, strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, endurance, gross motor skills, cognition, motor planning, confidence, motivation, and more.
Most importantly, treatment sessions and assessments are fun and play-based.
We believe that parents play an important role in the child's rehabilitation and we are committed to developing a program that can be followed at home.
While a referral from your Family Doctor or Pediatrician is not mandatory, we like to work closely with all health care professionals to provide the best care for your children. We will provide our assessment and progress reports to the referring physician.
