What are intensive courses of physiotherapy for children?

Our intensive rehabilitation courses for children are high intensity programmes of physiotherapy. They are carried out daily over a course of a few weeks and are designed in order to improve your child's functional ability. We often help children who have had neurological conditions from birth or those that have developed during childhood. We can combine the courses with the work of other health professionals such as speech and language therapists and occupational therapists. This can ensure that your child's widespread needs are met.

Which children may benefit from intensive courses of physiotherapy?

Intensive physiotherapy rehabilitation is often used for children with more serious neurological conditions. Despite this, there are other children who may also benefit from such intensive rehabilitation. Children who have had major surgery or who have suffered a trauma are likely to benefit. Some of the common conditions which can be helped by intensive courses of physiotherapy are as follows:

  • Cerebal Palsy
  • Spina Bifida
  • Brain Tumour
  • Developmental Delay
  • Stroke
  • Post-Surgey
  • Charcot Marie Tooth
  • Head Injury

What is involved with intensive courses of physiotherapy?

During the initial session, your child will be assessed in order to identify their specific needs. If the physiotherapists deems your child to be suitable to benefit from our intensive rehabilitation programme then the involvements and commitments will be discussed with you and your child.

Our specialist paediatric physiotherapists will look to work with both you and your child in order to devise a plan and functional goals to aim towards. Our intensive sessions involve a variety of activities that look to help your child achieve those goals as well as keeping your child engaged.
