Physiofit for Kids

At Physiofit, children will not be treated using adult techniques and approaches. We treat children with child specific and age appropriate techniques, so they have fun whilst getting better.

We have extensive knowledge of young athlete development ensuring that children achieve the correct advice about appropriate exercise during their vital growth spurts. Children need to relearn functional movements and regain balance and coordination after each major growth spurt so screening should be done more regularly during peak growth times.

 

We see children from the age of 5. We may ask that any child under the age of 16 be accompanied by an adult.
