PEDIATRIC PHYSIOTHERAPY

We accept inquiries and offer physiotherapy both individually and in groups aged 0-18. This includes assessment, observations, guidance, treatment and follow-up both individually and in groups. We treat children with various diagnoses and problems.

The physiotherapist arranges children and young peoples environment to promote good health. The physiotherapist contributes to measures that promote a good physical and psychosocial environment in nursery school, school, institution, after-school care, leisure time and home.

WHAT DO WE DO?

Arrange the environment in the home, nursery or school so that the child can function as best as possible based on his or her abilities.
