pediatric and childrens physiotherapy

Here at Tyrrell Physiotherapy, Swords, Co. Dublin we treat many conditions similar to those in general physiotherapy practice with children. However, there are many pathologies which are related almost entirely to childrens physiotherapy. Some of these may be recognised at birth, while others may become apparent later in the child’s development.

Conditions common to pediatric physiotherapy practice include:

  • Developmental delay
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Neural tube defects (Spina Bifida)
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Progressive neuromuscular disorders
  • Motor dysfunction
  • Rheumatology
  • Weight management
  • Developmental coordination disorder
  • Congenital syndromes
  • Talipes
  • Postural problems
  • Osteochondritis
  • Congenital absence/shortening of limbs
  • Trauma/injury
  • Orthopaedics
