Paediatric Physiotherapy

Alan Lyons MISCP is our specialist Paediatric Physiotherapist with over 9 years experience in the field.  Our Paediatric Physiotherapy treatment is based on an accurate assessment of the child followed by an individual treatment programme. This treatment programme includes explanation and instruction as appropriate to the child, the parents and those responsible for the child's development. Treatments can be arranged in our Clinic or at the child’s home.

Paediatric Physiotherapy takes into account the fact that the child is not a small adult but a developing human being. To become a fully integrated and mature person, a child must develop a vast array of skills, both personal and social to which many factors contribute.  For development of children's physical and mental potential the family and the environment are of prime importance.
