Physiotherapists are specialized in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of infants, children, and adolescents with a variety of congenital, developmental, neuromuscular, skeletal, or acquired disorders/diseases.
Pediatric rehabilitation is designed to improve the abilities of children and young people following major injury, illness or medical procedures which affect their function. Pediatric rehabilitation programs aim to maximize the ability of the child to participate in activities at home, school and the community. Families and caregivers play a key role in the rehabilitation program. An individualized program is designed to achieve specific goals in areas such as mobility, self care and communication. Suitability for rehabilitation is assessed on an individual basis.
Treatments focus mainly on improving gross and fine motor skills, balance and coordination, strength and endurance as well as cognitive and sensory processing/integration.
