Assessment and Treatment Planning

Each child's journey begins with a thorough assessment. Our skilled physiotherapists conduct a detailed evaluation of the child's physical condition, taking into account their developmental stage, individual needs, and lifestyle factors. This initial assessment includes a review of the child's medical history, a physical examination, and, when necessary, advanced diagnostic testing.

Based on the assessment, our therapists develop a personalized treatment plan designed to address each child's unique challenges and goals. This plan may include a combination of hands-on therapy, exercises, and movement training, along with strategies to manage pain and enhance overall function.

Family-centred Care

At Eastwood Physiotherapy Clinic, we believe in providing family-centred care. We understand that parents and caregivers play a critical role in a child’s recovery and ongoing well-being. Therefore, we ensure that family members are included in the treatment planning and decision-making process. We provide ongoing education about the child’s condition and how to support their treatment at home, enabling the family to feel confident in the child’s care and recovery journey.

Education and Prevention

Education is a cornerstone of our pediatric physiotherapy services. We strive to empower children and their families with the knowledge to understand their condition, manage symptoms, and prevent future issues. This includes guidance on safe and effective physical activity, posture education, and advice on ergonomic factors, like the use of school bags or sporting equipment.

Moreover, we provide preventative physiotherapy services designed to identify potential physical issues early on. We can detect musculoskeletal imbalances through preventative screenings and provide proactive treatments to prevent these from escalating into more severe conditions.
