Neurological Childrens Physiotherapy

Our children’s physiotherapists have specialist skills and experience in the treatment of babies, children, adolescents and the transition years into adult life.

We offer child physio covering Burntwood, Lichfield, Hednesford, Sutton. We can visit at home, school, nursery or college (click here for areas covered ). Whichever environment best meets your needs.

We offer physiotherapy for those children not only with diagnosed conditions, but also to help with any concerns over normal development.

If you have concerns about your childs’ physical development, or about meeting their milestones such as sitting, crawling and walking, we are able to offer an assessment and second opinion as to whether physiotherapy may help.
