Developmental Assessments & Treatment
Assessments available to determine your child’s current developmental motor skills. These assessments highlight areas that may benefit from therapy, whilst showing strengths that can be utilised within treatment plans to scaffold the weaker areas.
Differences in Walking Patterns
If you are concerned with your child’s walking, or their position or orientation of their knee’s or feet; than we can help you determine if there is something that needs to be done for them.
There are some common foot differences that can occur in newborns and children. If you are concerned with the position of your infant or childs foot and feel it may impact on their function. Please book an appointment and we can complete an assessment, and offer treatment advice.
Plagiocephaly (head shape differences) and Torticollis
During pregnancy as your baby grows, it can run out of room in the womb. This can cause your baby to be in a prolonged position with their head pressed up against your womb. Due to infant’s heads being pliable, this can cause a flattened spot on their skull and also cause neck muscle tightness.

We can help support skill development, whilst ensuring secondary changes are reduced and regular monitoring of your childs current presentation is provided where required.
Muskuloskeletal Releases and Manual Therapy
