What is Physiotherapy

At Pace, our physiotherapists are specialists in posture and movement because of their training in neurological and musculoskeletal systems. Our therapists also have specialist knowledge of physiotherapy in children and in understanding how children develop their physical skills.

 

We work with you to identify goals and develop a plan to build on the physical abilities your child has. We can recommend equipment and splints to provide support and help achieve their goals. Play and fun is a key focus of our sessions.
