Does your child appear floppy or loose in the joints? Do they walk on their toes? Do they have difficulty participating in and/or enjoying sport? Is your baby achieving their developmental milestones compared to other babies?
All of these children would benefit from Paediatric Physiotherapy, a sub-speciality of Physiotherapy just for infants, children and adolescents. Paediatric Physiotherapists have Masters level University training in Paediatric Physiotherapy and undertake advanced training in this area. This includes assessment of a wide range of Paediatric conditions and treatment to improve gross motor development, co-ordination and motor skill.
Triston Hunter, Paediatric Physiotherapist of Step Ahead Physiotherapy is also a long standing member of the Physiotherapy Department at Princess Margaret Hospital. She can assist your infant, child or adolescent with low muscle tone, co-ordination problems, idiopathic toe-walking, or gross motor delay with an accurate assessment and then formulate a treatment plan. She can provide treatment in her rooms, in your home or at school, depending on the unique needs of the child and your family.
Triston intends to hone in on Development in Babies 0-18 months with special emphasis on how that is unique in premature or sick infants. She welcomes your individual questions about children of any age to ensure your particular areas of concern are adequately addressed. The workshop will be held in Subiaco on Wednesday the 12th of November at 7pm. It is open to all families affected by high-risk pregnancy, premature birth or having a sick newborn.
