The children’s community physiotherapy service provides assessment, treatment and care co-ordination for children aged 0-19 years who have a physical disability or impairment, developmental difficulty, or walking and mobility difficulties.
Our team sees children in a variety of settings in Lambeth and Southwark. This includes clinics, schools, nurseries, or the child's home, depending on the individual needs and desired physiotherapy goals of the patient.
Our service is divided into five main care pathways:
- complex physical disabilities, eg children with severe neurological problems or severe movement delay
- early years – age 0-5
- mild/moderate physical impairment, eg mild cerebral palsy or stroke
- movement co-ordination difficulties
- musculoskeletal/walking (gait) difficulties.
