Children are not just little adults and must be treated differently when it comes to injuries of the muscles, bones and joints. Physiotherapist Dóra Konya-Bonner has postgraduate qualifications in assessing and treating paediatric conditions.
Some of the conditions assessed and treated at Mill Park Physiotherapy include:
· Developmental delay
· Plagiocephaly (mis-shapen head)
· Torticollis (neck stiffness)
· Neurological conditions, e.g. Cerebral Palsy
· Flat feet
· Knee, hip and back pain
· Osgood-schlatters disease
· Shin splints
· Heel pain, e.g. Severs disease
· Postural problems
At Mill Park Physiotherapy, we also run an Athletic Youth Development (AYD) class – a gym-based strength and conditioning class for children and adolescents. AYD classes are supervised by Physiotherapists and involve individualised programs for children.
