Our expert Paediatric Physiotherapists have a passion for helping children to fulfil their full physical and functional potential. 

Expert Physiotherapy for Children and Young Adults

Our expert Paediatric Physiotherapists have a passion for helping children to fulfil their full physical and functional potential, despite any disability or impairment which may be causing them difficulties.

We provide rehabilitation for children following catastrophic injuries and with developmental, neurological and musculoskeletal conditions. Children require a different approach to adults and our sessions are fun and rewarding.

How we work

NeuroPhysio provides each young person that we see with fun, effective rehabilitation, which realises their full potential and maintains our core values of excellence, integrity and empathy.

We offer clinic consultations, domiciliary visits and community-based rehabilitation depending on the needs of the child and their family. No matter where the consultations take place we aim for success to progress beyond the clinic and to achieve meaningful changes in their day-to-day life.

Initial needs assessment reports are comprehensive, including clinical assessment, objective measurement of the child’s ability, equipment considerations and a quote for the recommended rehabilitation frequency. We maintain comprehensive records including regular photographic and video recordings to document our treatment and their progress. NeuroPhysio provide regular informal updates and reports to ensure that you’re fully aware of how treatment is progressing.

Musculoskeletal Conditions

At NeuroPhysio our physiotherapists provide expert treatment of a variety of common musculoskeletal conditions such as after sports injuries, sprains, strains, knee pain and after fractures. 

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy is caused by a problem with the brain that occurs before, during or soon following birth. It is the most common disability affecting movement in childhood, and can result in a range of difficulties for the person including:

  • Muscle tightness.
  • Changes in muscle tone, either being too floppy or too tight.
  • Reduced coordination of movement.
  • Muscle weakness.
  • A change in walking pattern such as crossing the legs whilst walking or walking on the toes.
  • Uncontrolled involuntary movements.
  • Delays in reaching developmental landmarks.

The severity of and range of symptoms can vary enormously. At NeuroPhysio our children’s physiotherapist will any difficulties with you and your child and create a fun, effective rehabilitation programme. 

Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular Dystrophy describes a group of conditions that results in a gradual weakening of the muscles. There are many muscle wasting conditions which can affect people in different ways.

Our Paediatric Physiotherapists are experienced in assessing and providing treatment for people suffering with Muscular Dystrophy which may include advice, assistance to manage loss of muscle length and joint range, exercises to compensate for a loss of strength and assistance to maximise daily functioning. 

Developmental Delay

If your child is taking longer than usual to reach their developmental milestones we may be able to help. Common problems that we help with include learning to walk, to move purposefully and to interact with greater coordination.

Genetic Syndromes

At NeuroPhysio we help children with inherited diseases, developmental problems and difficulties. This might include changes to the child’s muscles, skeletal system or nervous system which can result in a wide range of problems.

Paediatric physiotherapy helps the child to improve the development of balance and coordination to assist in completing daily tasks. Rehabilitation exercises are prescribed based on the individual child’s circumstances and are often task-oriented. 

Down's Syndrome

Children with Down’s Syndrome may have muscle weakness, changes in joint stability or altered muscle tone which can affect their posture and movement. Our children’s physiotherapists help to improve strength and stability whilst minimising unwanted compensatory movements.


    Dyspraxia describes difficulty with coordinating movements which can result in apparent clumsiness or awkwardness when moving. Physical activity such as walking, hopping or jumping can sometimes be a problem, or more precise movements including getting dressed, writing, drawing or using a knife and fork can also be affected.

    Paediatric physiotherapy helps the child to improve the development of balance and coordination to assist in completing daily tasks. Rehabilitation exercises are prescribed based on the individual child’s circumstances and are often task-oriented.

                I have worked with James with a number of clients who have sustained catastrophic injuries. James has provided valuable input to each client. His contributions have undoubtedly promoted their quality of life, mobility and functioning. James is able to apply his skills and knowledge to promote the optimum outcomes for his clients. He is approachable and his clients and the multi-disciplinary teams greatly value his contributions. James responds in a timely manner to questions posed by myself and the team to ensure that the clients needs are addressed in a timely way. I would very much recommend James to you.

                Worked with James for my father's rehabilitation following a sudden and severe stroke. James dealt with any situation with upmost professionalism, whilst being fun and friendly. Over the 12 months of physio the progress has been incredible (bringing me to tears occasionally!) and James has adapted to suit the changing needs of my dad. Through both home sessions and sessions within our local gym my Dad went from strength to strength and I cannot thank him enough. Thank you James, giving my dad a better future than we once thought wouldn't be possible.
