Supporting young people towards a
healthy and pain free lifestyle

Your child is the centre of our attention

Physio4Kids

is dedicated to  joint & muscle (musculo-skeletal) problems in younger people. Lead by our principal therapist Sid Ahamed, who is one of the U.K’s leading lecturers in paediatric orthopaedic physiotherapy.

We cover the full range of childhood injury

from joints and soft tissues to spinal problems.

In addition

see children with neuro-muscular and movement development or control issues to help them develop normal movement, restore mobility, balance and co-ordination.

For Orthopaedic Investigation

we have referral links with the region’s leading specialists.

Suitable treatment ages

Typically we see children from the age of 5-6 yrs old.
But younger children may also be appropriate for treatment.
Contact us to see if treatment is suitable for younger ages.

Treatment period

Young people rarely need lengthy courses of treatment.
Normally appropriate assessment, professional advice and guidance will address a young person's issues.

Non specific issues

These include poor co-ordination, balance and movement control.
In these cases we offer specialist programs ranging from supervised exercise, through personal training to DMT a new form of therapeutic exercise.

KIDS SPORTS INJURY CLINIC

Dedicated to the needs of young athletes

Children and adolescents suffer from a unique set of injuries that adults by definition cannot have i.e. injuries to the growth tissues within the developing skeleton. Growth tissues such as growth plates (physeal plates ) , or cartilaginous tendon insertions ( apophyses or traction epiphyses ) do not exist in the adult skeleton having matured and ossified.

Our physiotherapists have the specialist post-graduate training for this area of practice

Our patients tell us...

I took Lucy to Splash World yesterday and it was the first time ever that she's been able to stand without holding hands paddling. She went in up to her knees and it was so lovely to see. I just wanted to say a big thank you! With your help with physio and the programme you put in place Lucy was able to enjoy the beach mostly unaided for the first time. There's such a hugh difference in Lucy after doing this last session with you. So thanks again from Lucy and myself for all your time and hard work, it's really appreciated.

 

ADELE

We approached several private physios and were particularly impressed with Nadia right from our initial assessment session. He took the time and effort to clearly explain how Nadia's condition would affect her ability to control her movement, and how this linked in with the approach that he would use to treat her. He has taught us how to integrate physiotherapy into everyday activities, and as a result we have seen great progress in Nadia's development, and also her attitude to physiotherapy in general. We have seen the benefits of the work in Nadia's movement, and have happily recommended the clinic to friends whose children require help with physical development.

 

FRAYA

I struggled to get Charles to co-operate with various private physios and therefore relied on his once-a-month NHS appointments. Finally I came across Physio4Kids following a recommendation. I’ve never been so pleased with the help, support and knowledge of a physiotherapist. From the 1st appointment Charlie has engaged and responded very well with therapy. I have no hesitation in recommending their service to any families needing flexible, reliable and most of all professional care for there child/children. Many thanks for your continued support.
