Looking after your children
Their bodies come with unique issues that can often stem from the continuous development they are going through, with many of our younger patients’ problems stemming from the simple fact that their muscles haven’t grown and stretched in sync with their frame.
As with any other person who comes to see us, first of all we complete a thorough assessment to diagnose the problem, before creating a bespoke treatment plan for that individual. When treating children, it’s important to make sure that both the patient and their parent/guardian understand what is happening during every stage of the treatment plan and why we are making the recommendations we make. This helps to remove any fear or uncertainty your child may have around seeing us, as well as making the recommended treatment programme as effective as possible.
Children’s bodies have the remarkable ability to recover quickly from strain and injury. However, this means they need to be seen quickly to enable them to recover in the best way possible, so we bear this in mind when booking appointments.
