When to get help from a Physiotherapist?
Montrose Physiotherapists provide movement and mobility therapies for children and young people living with neuromuscular disability, physical disability, developmental delay, Intellectual disability and ASD. Your Montrose Physiotherapist will work closely with you and your family to monitor and treat movement disorders, address muscle and pain issues and improve mobility.
We can provide support with the following:
Our expert team of therapists will work with you on a range of exercises tailored to your needs. These exercises are designed to increase your coordination, strength and flexibility. They also help to improve your posture and help control your movement. We can also assist with exercises for people who are suffering from respiratory interventions.
If your child is having trouble with anything including balance, strength or coordination, it is important you address these issues early. The expert team at Montrose will be able to provide your child with the appropriate children’s physiotherapy to focus and improve these limitations, giving your child the best possible chance of success.
We can assist with the selection, assessment and prescription for any mobility equipment that you may need. This includes wheelchairs, walkers and standing frames.

With the support of Montrose physiotherapists, four-year-old Patrick loved taking his new trike for a spin around our South Brisbane Office.
Trike-riding supports clients with social participation and can assist with balance, coordination and building strength.
At Montrose, we believe that a disability shouldn’t get in the way of you living your life to the fullest. Our paediatric physiotherapy services can assist in helping children reach age-appropriate milestones such as running, hopping and riding a bike.
Most of our Service Centres offer Aquatic Physiotherapy (sometimes called hydrotherapy or water physiotherapy) as part of our physiotherapy programs. Aquatic Physiotherapy is the use of warm water properties to stimulate rehabilitation, exercises and relaxation. Find out more here.
Our friendly team of physiotherapists can provide you with assessments and comprehensive reports with recommendations to benefit the progression of your physiotherapy.
We can provide education and training for parents, guardians, carers, support workers and educational staff. This may relate to a client’s specific needs or condition and can be provided in home, community and school settings. We also offer advice on how you can physically assist a child or young person who has a disability or mobility impairment.
You may need additional, intensive support to achieve a specific goal. At Montrose we can help you with this through our Therapy Assistant service.
Your Montrose therapy programs can be supported by a Therapy Assistant under the supervision of a Speech Pathologist, Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist.
Your Montrose therapist will design a program that targets specific goals to be delivered by your Therapy Assistant. This could involve intensive focus on an important goal, ongoing practice to achieve an outcome or resource development.
Therapy Assistant programs usually include 6-10 sessions and case notes will be completed following each session by the Therapy Assistant.
In some cases, programs can be developed for delivery by your own Disability Support Worker. This has the same benefits as delivery by a Montrose Therapy Assistant but can allow delivery at home or in the community, and as part of your existing support plan.
