Our team of experienced Physios believe that every child should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential and take part in the physical aspects of everyday life to the best of their ability.  We support children and young people with developmental delay, physical disability and congenital and genetic conditions, providing assessment, diagnosis and treatment programs. We work with children to improve movement and maintain or develop strength, flexibility and posture. We can also assist with prescription and advice around mobility equipment.

  • Assist with recommendations and prescription for mobility equipment such as walkers and standers
