Neurodevelopmental Physiotherapy

For Parents

 

Neurodevelopmental Service

The physiotherapists within this team provide an inpatient service for infants with neurological or developmental concerns.

We will look at your child's developmental milestones (rolling, sitting, walking - as appropriate), their posture, range of movement, strength, and muscle tone.

We work alongside the multidisciplinary team, which may include doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, dieticians, speech and language therapists or play specialists

An assessment of your child and treatment plan will be made on the ward initially and may include being seen in our rehab gym.  We will set up an individualised treatment program which may include:

  • activities to facilitate normal development and normal movement patterns
  • positioning advice to maintain a good posture
  • advice and education for parents, carers and nursing staff
