Paediatric Physiotherapy Care
Babies and children are tender, and it’s quite challenging to understand their emotions. Apart from an evidential problem, babies may resort to crying, implying an issue with their body. Identifying specific problems like joint pain becomes problematic except with an experienced paediatric physiotherapist.
Paediatric Physiotherapy is a branch of physiotherapy dealing with identifying, diagnosing, and treating child development or movement problems. Physiomount is a physiotherapy centre providing specialized Paediatric Physiotherapy Care in Toronto. We utilize an array of highly developed hands-on skills, captivating games, and fun activities while handling each child. Our staff is compassionate and highly influential towards children.
Approaches to Paediatric Physiotherapy
Neurodevelopmental Therapy (NDT): For children 0-18 years of age. NDT is a neuromuscular and functional re-education technique that includes neuroplasticity as a basis for how the brain can change and reorganize itself and its processes. It is based on practice, and reflex inhibitory positions developed to reduce spasticity and enhance normal movement and functions of those who have difficulty controlling movement as a result of neurological damage such as cerebral palsy, hypertonia, hypotonia, ataxia stroke and brain injury.
It uses hands-on key points of control to facilitate normal posture/movement and inhibit abnormal posture/movement; it may include manual stretching if PT has determined ROM/muscle length interferes with function. This helps therapists to develop a holistic approach towards the functional limitations that need to be considered when implementing a therapy plan of care. A family member is an integral part of the team to enhance patient participation and improve the quality of life. NDT Therapists Toronto have clear understanding of typical and atypical movement pattern, expertise in analyzing abnormal movement activity and postural control.
Neurofacilitation Techniques are based on the principle of providing sensory input to the central nervous system to produce reflex motor output. This technique aims to normalize muscle tone and advance postural reactions to facilitate normal movement patterns.
CIMT- Constrained movement therapy: Where normal limb is constrained, and paralytic limp is forced to use. Begin therapy after one year of age when a child can feed using a spoon and play with toys. Encourage child age-appropriate activities to help achieve or increase the use of the affected side of the limb.
