Paediatric Community Physiotherapy
Our Paediatric Community Physiotherapy service is based is the Birnie Centre, Raigmore, Inverness.
We assess and manage children and young people who have significant difficulty with movement, balance and mobility over and above what would be expected at their age and stage of development. This may be caused by disability, injury or illness. We aim to improve the quality of life of children by promoting independence and encouraging physical wellbeing.
There is a range of possible ways of providing therapy to support children and young people. These will always involve working with and through the child/young person, their family and others, such as classroom assistants, teachers and early years staff. Together we aim to develop an effective plan that takes into account the child/ young person’s lifestyle, leisure activities, general health and their needs and expectations.
