Musculoskeletal Problems in Children

Musculoskeletal problems are more common in children than people think. They can often have a big effect on children as their bodies are still growing and developing. Musculoskeletal problems can also be very restrictive as children are generally very active. At PhysioNeeds we can help to reduce symptoms to get children back to enjoying their sports and activities pain free!

Physiotherapy sessions

Consultations will take 30 minutes depending on your condition. During your initial assessment your physiotherapist will assess and diagnose your condition, as well as discuss your specific goals. All of this will be based on a combination of questions and physical examination. We aim to also start treatment on our first session, as long as this is deemed appropriate.
