Do you want to become more mobile, grow stronger, have more control over movement, or reduce pain and stiffness? Physiotherapy can help.
A physiotherapist works with you to improve your quality of life and give you the confidence to do more of the activities you enjoy. They get to know you and your disability, as well as your goals in life. Then, they can design a tailored program to make you feel more comfortable.
Your parent or carer is encouraged to join the sessions. They can learn ways to help you work towards your goals, and how to help you move in a way that is safe for both you and them.
How our physiotherapists can help you:
Physiotherapists use a range of techniques. Things like massage, exercises, physical activities, heat, breathing exercises, and other non-invasive techniques can all help give you more mobility.
For example, a physiotherapist can help you:
- Feel stronger or more flexible
- Have less pain
- Improve balance and coordination
- Control your movement
- Choose mobility equipment, such as a wheelchair, walker or standing frame.
- Improve your posture
- Learn new skills
And they can teach your parent or carer:
- How to help you do your exercises
- The safest way to hold you or help you move
- How to help you use your mobility equipment
- How to help you feel more comfortable at home
