New Service: Children's (Paediatric) Physiotherapy

08 January 2020

Vicki Busby is the Abbey Clinic’s Paediatric Physiotherapist specialising in neurodevelopmental physiotherapy for 0-16 year olds. Vicki is passionate about helping children to achieve their potential regardless of the limitations of their condition.  She works closely alongside parents and caregivers to provide them with the handling skills and tools to achieve results and to empower families to be at the centre of their child’s progress.

From the 30th January 2020, The Abbey Clinic will offer Physiotherapy for the treatment of babies, children and adolescents with:

What to expect

For babies and young infants it is likely we will ask you to undress your child to enable a full assessment of their movement. For older children it is recommended that they have shorts available. Observation is a critical part of the assessment of younger children - exploring their movement through play, therefore we endeavour to provide an environment where they feel comfortable to play and explore.

Initial assessments will last an hour. For children under 5 years of age it is recommended that you bring their red book to enable a comprehensive history to be taken.
