Welcome to Paediatric Physiotherapy Centre
Paediatric Physiotherapy Centre has a large focus on Neurology and Child development. Mary-Anne Xenitelis ( Physiotherapist) is a Betterstart provider for those children who have funding under this program.
The practice rooms are colourful and have toys and equipment to keep your child relaxed, entertained and co- operative. Therapies for the young child are play based, which is dependent on age and condition. One room is designed for babies and young children.
A rehabilitation room is fully equipped focusing on the older child with a neurological disability or gross motor developmental issues. This room is also designed for children who are highly distractable and need to focus on the task at hand.
