For children with developmental delays, having an active daily life may come with its own obstacles. Physiotherapy primarily focuses on the child’s independence to help build gross motor strength and skills and promote your child’s physical abilities. Improving strength and range of motion boosts learning and fosters a child’s physical independence. The more independence they experience, the more confidence they gain. 

There are a multitude of reasons for a child requiring physiotherapy, such as: pregnancy or delivery concerns, prematurity, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, hypotonia, global developmental delay, muscular dystrophy or torticollis. Physiotherapy is a primary team player for children who are going through or recovering from cancer treatment to maintain or restore muscle strength and function. Similarly, children who have had surgery, extended bed rest, or experience fatigue as a result of an underlying medical condition can benefit from working with a Physiotherapist to maintain their physical abilities. Whatever the reason, our experienced physiotherapists work with families, medical professionals and caregivers to create a custom therapeutic plan and set goals specially for your child. 

Always accountable to our industry standards. 

Our Physiotherapists are accountable to both their clients and the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario. The College is the self-governing body that ensures ethical, competent and safe practice of Physiotherapy in Ontario. Following the standards presented by the College, our Physiotherapists complete annual registration and participate in furthering education, competency assessments and clinical audits to ensure they continue to provide an excellent quality of therapy.
