Physiotherapy Services in Belconnen

Physiotherapy can encompass a range of clinical areas. Physiotherapists who work with children can provide guidance on how to facilitate gross motor skill attainment and maximise independence in mobility.

Key clinical areas include developmental assessments, gross motor skill acquisition for independence and play, postural or alignment assessment, gait (walking) assessment, pain and fatigue management, and guidance in lifelong physical conditions to avoid joint contractures, pain and weakness.
Physiotherapy may include equipment prescription such as orthotics or orthoses and walking and standing frames. Intervention may include working with childcare centres and schools to provide staff training, environmental assessment and planning, and written programs or recommendations that can be followed at home or in educational settings.

Our physiotherapists use evidence-based practice to empower parents and their children to maximise independence and enjoyment of movement. At Eat Speak Learn we enjoy working with parents to develop strategies to make intervention and home programs enjoyable.

Physiotherapy is a great complimentary service to speech pathology, occupational therapy, exercise physiology and dietetics.

Assessments for babies aged 4 months or younger.

This assessment is for concerns such as:

  • Head-shape concerns (plagiocephaly)
  • Foot position concerns (positional talipes)
  • Body position concerns (body curves one way or baby always looks one way such as in torticollis). This can present with feeding difficulties to one breast due to tightness turning their head in one direction.
  • Unusual movements or concerns about development
  • Any birth complications such as brachial plexus palsy

Please note: all assessments for children in this age group includes an optional General Movements Assessment video taken on arrival at the clinic.
