When to seek help from a Physiotherapist?
Montrose Physiotherapists provide movement and mobility therapies for children and young people living with physical and intellectual disabilities. A Montrose Physiotherapist will work closely with you and your family to monitor and treat movement disorders, address muscle and pain issues and improve mobility.
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.
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 young ones reach age-appropriate milestones such as running, hopping and riding a bike.
We can assist with the selection, assessment and prescription for any mobility equipment that you may need. This includes wheelchairs, walkers and standing frames.
Our friendly team of physiotherapists can provide you with assessments and comprehensive reports with recommendations to benefit the progression of your physiotherapy.
We provide education and training programs for anyone who may benefit from them. This includes for parent/guardian, carer/support workers and educational staff. We also offer advice on how you can physically assist someone who has a disability or mobility impairment.
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 physiotherapy to focus and improve these limitations, giving your child the best possible chance of success.
Most of our Service Centres offer hydrotherapy as part of our physiotherapy programs. Hydrotherapy (sometimes called aquatic therapy) is the use of warm water properties to stimulate rehabilitation, exercises and relaxation. Find out more here.
