Paediatric (Kids)/ Tamariki 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.

Paediatric physiotherapy is designed to help children achieve their optimal movement and development. 

Treatment will vary from hands on therapy, posture education, core and muscle strengthening but always with an underlying focus on your child’s goals and developmental needs. Overall, your child needs to feel comfortable with their therapist. All of our staff aim to build the essential rapport with your child and do our best to ensure that age appropriate play is incorporated into your child’s treatment at all times. Our goal is to have strengthening and coordination tasks disguised within games in our large exercise and gym space. This allows optimal engagement and an enjoyable experience for all involved. Furthermore, these games can then be carried on at home to ensure the best treatment outcomes can be achieved. 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.

Childhood isn’t meant to replicate adult life- sitting at little cubicles and desks, day-after-day. Moving, exploring, running and activity and what children need to thrive. That is where they learn how the world works and their place in it.

Let them move!
