Children and Adolescent Physiotherapy

Physiolistic is a centre of excellence for childrens and adolescent injuries and sports physio and rehabilitation.

Our physiotherapists undertake specialist training in children's sport injuries and are passionate about keeping children active. We have started a dedicated schools injury prevention programme called Tyhtan. We also have very close ties with local NHS and Private Paediatric Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine doctors.

Injuries in children and adolescents are too often diagnosed as adult injuries despite their developing bodies being very different anatomically and physiologically. The structures that are injured can therefore be very different.

 

At Physiolistic we will ensure your child gets the right diagnosis and therefore makes a speedy recovery without lifelong problems. We are also able to offer gross motor development testing if you have concerns about your child’s development or co-ordination. We also offer tailored rehabilitation programs for hypermobile children.

We also offer personal training with a physio to get children sports ready.

Children's Sport Physio Rehabilitation

Our physios bring their extensive experience and training in rehabilitation to offer a tailored programme to suit your unique needs of your child. We also have access to the latest technology to assess your running technique and gait on a treadmill (or your position on your bike).


We are also able to offer affordable, off-the-shelf orthotics that are customisable to help improve your biomechanics if required.

Diagnostic Ultrasound for accurate sports injury diagnosis

Physiolistic is one of the few clinics to have a high resolution ultrasound scanner. The use of diagnostic ultrasound, if appropriate in your assessment, allows the physio to confirm the diagnosis after clinical testing. It has allowed us to pick up numerous injuries that have been missed by x-ray and also will change our treatment plan according to the findings. It is also useful in the use of rehabilitation especially for core stability.


It also allows the physio to monitor the progress of your treatment objectively. Diagnostic ultrasound is included in your initial assessment, if appropriate, at no extra cost.

Children's Personal Training with a Physio

Our physios have also undertaken additional sports and exercise degrees qualifying them to work as personal trainers and sports massage therapists. This gives patients the ideal service of having personal training sessions and goals set by someone who is also a qualified physiotherapist. ​


The personal training sessions are individual 1:1 sessions in the Physiolistic gym and/or on the Rugby Club astroturf.

Performance enhancement and injury prevention screening

We are able to offer an appointment that we test how well your child is moving. Moving well will reduce your child's chance of getting injured but also greatly improve their sporting ability. 


As they are growing rapidly, their coordination and movement ability will change with growth spurts. We therefore offer one off testing or 3 testings a year to help monitor these changes 


The assessment covers over 20 tests locking at the entire body including, posture, flexibility, strength , balance and dynamic sports testing (hopping and balance).


We then write a bespoke report and also give you access to targeted exercise videos.
