Paediatric Physiotherapy

Kids should not just be treated as small adults. Different growing stages, developmental milestones and cognitive level of each child needs careful consideration and time. Understanding of children and their rehabilitation needs is essential in ensuring good rehabilitation outcomes. Amanda Meys over-sees all rehabilitation of children under the age of 15 at Avenues Physio-Fitness. Amanda has graduated from AUT with a post graduate diploma in Child Health and has studied paediatric physiotherapy through Monash University. Amanda worked previously as the Paediatric Physiotherapist at Tauranga Hospital and has experience working with children with a wide variety of different conditions. All of our staff aim to build the essential rapport with your child. We ensure that we spend the necessary time that your child needs to understand their injury or condition and that exercises and treatments are made as fun as possible. The staff at Avenues Physio-Fitness also ensure that we communicate with schools, coaches and medical professionals regularly to ensure the best outcome is reached. Please contact our reception with any questions regarding the important care of your child.
