Physiotherapy For Kids

Physiotherapy for Children & Babies

At Embrace Life, our experienced Physiotherapist Sonia Tamhane, can assist your child with musculoskeletal issues, sporting injuries and recovery.

An appointment with our Physio’s is more play based for children and incorporates home based exercises, stretch and strengthening exercises, as well as handling and positioning advice.   Where appropriate, our Practitioners will refer to other health professionals that may be beneficial for your child, such as Speech Pathologists, Paediatricians, Occupational Therapists etc.
