Paediatric and Adolescent Therapy Services

Paediatric and adolescent physiotherapy is the rehabilitation of infants through to young adults. MNC treat individuals with neurological and developmental problems within this age group and into the transition of adulthood.

At MNC, our highly specialist physiotherapists are committed to a child centered therapy approach to help maximise their physical ability to allow them to play, learn or work. This is to ensure that they are able to thrive in their environment rather than adapt to their disability.  At MNC, we will work closely with the child’s family and support workers alongside other health professionals.

 

MNC have close working links with other health professions, such as Paediatric Occupational Therapists, Orthotists, Speech and Language Therapists and providers of specialist equipment to provide a holistic approach to neuro-rehabilitation.
