Paediatric Rehabilitation

Physiotherapists at Chitra Physiotherapy Clinic help to maintain and develop functional skill level and range of movement in order to minimise joint contracture and postural deformities in children facing various paediatric conditions.

Our physiotherapists assess and treat infants and children with a range of conditions including:

  • cerebral palsy - from mild hemiplegia to severe quadriplegia;
  • developmental delay - due to hypotonia with or without diagnosis and may be gross motor or global;
  • syndromes and other genetic conditions;
  • bullet spina bifida and neural tube defects;
  • muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy;
  • brachial plexus lesions;
  • juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA);
  • visual handicaps;
  • premature babies with dystonia;
  • postural problems - torticollis, scoliosis, talipes, metatarsus adductus, or idiopathic toe walkers;
  • respiratory problems such as cystic fibrosis or asthma;
  • osteogenis imperfecta;
  • minimal cerebral dysfunction.

We encourage children to partake in a wide range of activities at school and in the community to maintain physical fitness and provide opportunities for socialisation with their peers. We also prescribe and monitor the use of aids such as orthotics, walking aids, and wheelchairs to help maintain independence.
