Paediatric Physiotherapists: Understanding their Role and Benefits

What is a paediatric physiotherapist?

A paediatric physiotherapist is a physiotherapist who has received advanced training, either through a master’s program or post-diploma courses, in pediatric physiotherapy. Babies and children require a delicate touch and specialised physio techniques, which is why it’s important for therapists to have specialised training to effectively treat this population.

Paediatric Physiotherapy specialisation can go even further, as a paediatric physio can specialise in Neuro Paediatric Physiotherapy, Musculoskeletal or orthopaedic Paediatric Physiotherapy as well as paediatric respiratory Physiotherapist.

What Paediatric physiotherapists learn during their paediatric physio training

A pediatric physiotherapist is trained in gentle and effective techniques specific to the anatomy of babies and their individual conditions. Through post-diploma courses, they learn about the anatomy of babies, how to diagnose and treat various conditions, and most importantly, how to accurately assess a baby to ensure comprehensive care.

As pediatric physiotherapy techniques continue to evolve, it is essential for pediatric physiotherapists to stay up-to-date by participating in ongoing continuing professional development (CPD) programs in pediatric physiotherapy. This helps them to provide the most current and effective care for their young patients.

Early Detection for Optimal Care: Comprehensive Assessment Techniques for Pediatric Physiotherapy

Some baby conditions may be difficult to detect for the untrained eye or inexperienced parents. That’s why it’s important for pediatric physiotherapists to have thorough training in various assessment techniques. This allows them to provide accurate diagnoses and lay the foundation for effective rehabilitation. The pediatric assessment is crucial in ensuring the best possible outcomes for the child’s therapy.

The good news is that these issues can be effectively treated through pediatric physiotherapy, leading to complete resolution.

Rebalancing baby after birth: Birth can be a traumatic experience for babies, whether it is through the use of forceps, c-section, or even natural birth. This trauma can result in tension in various parts of the baby’s body, leading to sleep problems, reflux, colic, developmental delays, and more. To address these issues, a baby rebalancing session with a paediatric osteopath can help to release the tensions and prevent future health problems. It is a crucial treatment for ensuring that your baby reaches their full potential for optimal health

Paediatric physio for baby Developmental delay

Excellence physiotherapy London offers paediatric treatment to babies and small children with movement difficulties

  • Baby Late walking Physiotherapy: Delayed milestones in infants can be caused by various underlying factors. Our pediatric physiotherapist will conduct a comprehensive assessment to identify the cause of your baby’s delayed walking development and implement a tailored program of play-based and enjoyable exercises aimed at enhancing their ability to walk. Additionally, the pediatric physiotherapist will provide you with guidance on exercises you can perform with your baby at home between sessions.
  • Baby Late crawling physiotherapy: Moreover, a baby who hasn’t yet started crawling can be a sign of a neurological condition or not. To determine the underlying cause, our paediatric physiotherapist will perform various tests to assess the baby’s reflexes, muscle tone, and other key indicators. Based on the results of this assessment, the paediatric physiotherapist will design a tailored exercise program to help the baby learn to crawl more quickly and get back on track with their developmental milestones.

Paediatric physio for baby musculoskeletal condition in London:

  • Baby feet deformities Physitherapy (baby feet turning inward or outward): The position of a baby in the womb can sometimes affect the alignment of their feet after birth, leading to inward or outward turning. Our paediatric physiotherapist will carefully examine the tension in the muscles surrounding the baby’s feet and address any imbalances through targeted exercises. This will help to realign the feet, promoting proper walking technique and setting a strong foundation for the rest of the child’s life.
  • Baby torticollis, stiff neck Physiotherapy : The position of the baby during pregnancy can sometimes result in imbalanced neck muscles, leading to a preference for turning the head to one side. Stiff neck in infants is typically a treatable condition through physiotherapy. The pediatric physiotherapist will perform a combination of stretching, neck stimulation exercises, massage, and provide advice to parents on appropriate positions for carrying, feeding, and sleeping to improve the baby’s neck mobility.
  • Baby flat head syndrome Physiotherapy: It is common for parents to notice the formation of a flat spot on their baby’s head over time, which is caused by prolonged periods of lying in the same position. If a baby has torticollis, which is a condition where they are unable to move their head to one side, they may develop a flat spot on the opposite side or at the back of their head. However, this condition can be easily treated with a series of physiotherapy exercises, modeling techniques, and stretching. With the right intervention, the flat head in babies can disappear in just a few sessions.
  • Hip dysplasia Physiotherapy : Hip dysplasia is a condition in which the hip joint is not properly formed in infants. This can result in a shallow socket for the head of the femur, leading to a higher risk of dislocation throughout their life. Early intervention by a pediatric physiotherapist is crucial in treating hip dysplasia. Through specific exercises and guidance, the depth of the hip socket can be improved,
  • Brachial plexus syndrome: Brachial nerve injury in infants is often a result of birth trauma or any other form of damage. It’s crucial to seek treatment as soon as possible in order to allow the pediatric physiotherapist to perform neurostimulation and help the baby regain the use of their affected arm.

Paediatric physio for baby respiratory infections

  • Bronchiolitis: is a baby respiratory infection which creates mucus in his lungs. Baby has difficulty breathing, eating and sleeping. Chest physiotherapy with our paediatric physio will clear baby’s lung from the mucus to allow them to recover from bronchiolitis without medication.
  • Bronchitis and chest infection: same principle as the above.
  • Baby Asthma: Pediatric respiratory physiotherapy plays a crucial role in managing asthma in children. The pediatric physiotherapist will guide your child through a series of exercises to promote proper abdominal breathing, strengthen the diaphragm, and increase lung capacity, which can help alleviate the symptoms of asthma and improve oxygenation. These exercises are designed to help the child take control of their asthma crises, and reduce the overall impact of asthma on their health.
  • Baby cystic fibrosis: Babies with cystic fibrosis produce over thick mucus in their alveoli, which makes the breathing difficult and often their lungs get filled with mucus with the risk of chest infection that it brings. Weekly chest physiotherapy will relief baby from these symptoms and will avoid them to get regular chest infections.

Baby Digestive conditions

  • Baby reflux: The best treatment for baby reflux of silent reflux is digestive osteopathy. By removing tension in baby’s digestive system and rebalancing them along with feeding advice, will make baby’s reflux go away.
  • Baby Colic: Same principle as above
