Children's Community Physiotherapy

Community Physiotherapy

What do we do?

We predominantly see children who have difficulties with their physical abilities due to either an underlying neurological cause or associated with a global developmental delay. We specialise in treating children with neurological conditions (including Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delay, Developmental Co-ordination Disorder, Spina Bifida, Genetic Syndromes and Acquired Brain Injuries)

Children with recent injuries e.g. broken leg, chest infections will be seen by the Physiotherapy team based at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital
