CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENT PHYSIOTHERAPY
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 childrens sport injuries and are passionate about keeping children active. We have started a dedicated schools injury prevention programme called Tyhtan.
We are one of the few clinics where our physios undertake specialist training in children and adolescent injuries. 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 treat a range of abilities from Olympic athletes to weekend warriors and are passionate about getting you back quickly to the sport you love. We all also play various sports to a high level and therefore have in-depth knowledge of sporting biomechanics.
Our Director is one of only a handful of clinicians who is an International Advanced Compex Trainer and therefore can guide your rehabilitation with muscle stimulation as experienced by Elite athletes.
All our physiotherapist also have qualifications in Acupuncture, Fascial release, pilates and sports massage and therefore have an array of skills for you to reach your goal. We also have expertise and technology to assess your running, cycling and sport biomechanics, to help identify the cause of your particular problem but also optimise your technique.
Physiolistic have invested in these technologies and the continued education of the physios to ensure you get first class care!
Sports Physios treat muscle, bone, nerve and fascial problems utilising an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics.
All our physiotherapists are members of the HCPC and CSP and regularly attend in-service education and further studies. And are also Quality Assured practitioners (only 150 out of 27000 physio's hold this accreditation)
Our Sports physios use a number of different techniques including mobilisation, massage, exercises, electrotherapy (e.g. ultrasound), biofeedback and muscle stimulation, modified pilates, acupuncture, biomechanical/video analysis, activity modification, Shockwave therapy, instrumented assisted massage, strapping and training on injury prevention advice.
Your sport physio treatment will be specific to you. It will generally consist of a mixture of hands-on treatment and 1:1 exercise rehabilitation.
