Physiotherapy at Centre of Movement utilises a holistic approach aimed at developing a child’s movement ability through imaginative play, functional movement training and facilitation of developmental milestones. Our passion is to watch children attain increasing levels of function and are committed to helping children to reach their potential in all aspects of life.
We will collaborate with families on the child’s goals and provide support using a wide range of Physiotherapy interventions to help you and your child achieve these goals. We recognise the challenge of raising a child, especially with a disability, and can provide you with tools and education to help provide a rich learning environment at home or at school to complement therapies utilised at the Centre of Movement.
For children to be able to reach their full potential and live life to the fullest they should be able to experience all the world has to offer. Childhood is a unique season where we get to lay down the building blocks of a fulfilling life and explore the world through fun and play.
Early intervention and increased physical function in childhood has been linked to increased quality of life and greater independence throughout the lifespan. Movement is fundamental for a child to entice their curiosity, explore their surroundings and engage with the world naturally through play which not only improves their physical capacity and independence but also improves cognitive function, emotional regulation and mental wellbeing.
