Paediatric Physiotherapy

Paediatric physiotherapy at In-Form aims to help improve gross motor skills and mobility, working towards competence in sitting, standing, walking and, later, more refined gross motor skills – jumping, running, skipping.

Our physiotherapists work with each child to improve range of motion, to build strength and endurance and improve balance – all necessary in achieving maximum functional independence.

Some conditions that In-Form physiotherapists treat include:

  • Cerebral Palsy and other neurological conditions
  • Gross motor delay
  • Developmental delay
  • Brachial plexus Injuries
  • Torticollis
  • Hypotonia
  • General orthopaedic conditions
  • Acquired brain injury
  • Cardio-respiratory rehabilitation
  • Genetic disorders

Treatment Modalities
Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT)

According to the Neuro-Developmental Treatment Association, NDT is a problem-solving approach to the examination and treatment of the impairments and functional limitations of individuals with neuropathology, primarily children with Cerebral Palsy.

Post-Stroke Rehabilitation

There are several different approaches to physiotherapy treatment after stroke. We primarily use Sensory motor therapy (NDT/Bobath included)  which is a hands-on treatment given by therapists skilled in the facilitation of normal movement patterns, which are basic for everyday activities such as bathing, dressing, talking, and eating, as well as the more skilled demands of school, work and leisure. Co-ordinated movement is incorporated into functional activities such as life skills, and can be reinforced with a closely monitored fitness program.

Massage Therapy provides an alternative health option to help alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use, and many chronic pain syndromes. It can also greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning, if employed early enough after accidents involving trauma and injury.

Many of today's health problems arise from stress. Because stress upsets the delicate intregral balance of all your body's functions, regaining this balance requires a holistic approach.

  • Contemporary Acupuncture is a precise technique in which fine solid needles are inserted into areas of the body that are neurologically relevant to the condition. The needles are either stimulated manuallt or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems, as well as the effects on the body.

    The main uses for acupuncture are for the treatment of acute or chronic pain of musculoskeletal dysfunction, and the treatment of symptoms associated with abnormal neurvous system functioning.

    Ancillary techniques of Acupuncture may include one or more of the following:

    • Electro-Acupuncture: where the needles are electrically stimulated are various frequencies to increase their therapeutic benefit

    • Dry Needling: where muscles are briefly needled by an acupuncture needle, and held in a needle holder to release trigger points and spasms
