Our team of physiotherapists have experience and knowledge related to the paediatric population, allowing us to effectively provide care for babies, children and adolescents. For every child, our goal is to develop a comprehensive treatment program that will incorporate various exercises, play techniques as well as parent education to assist your child in attaining their full potential and to allow them to thrive in everyday life.
Butterfly’s Approach to Physiotherapy
By using standardized outcome measures to assess your child’s current level of function, our physiotherapists will identify both your child’s strengths as well as their challenges to overcome. With this information, our physiotherapists will then have a discussion with you to identify your child’s goals and to create an individualized treatment plan in order to achieve them. Our physiotherapists pride themselves on using a client and family centered approach to care, in order to optimize success.
Our physiotherapists use a hands-on approach to rehabilitation. We are skilled in a variety of specialized handling techniques to provoke and facilitate gross motor development, optimize function and recover from injury. We are always seeking ongoing learning opportunities and have taken continued education courses related, but not limited to:
- Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT)
- Cuevas Medek Exercises (CME)
- Infantile torticollis and plagiocephaly
- Infantile and toddler gross motor skill development
- Theraeutic taping techniques and electrical stimulation
- Orthopedic manual techniques
- Functional strength training
- Concussion rehabilitation
We are also able to assist families with equipment and orthotic assessment by connecting you with various service providers in the area.
At Butterfly Paediatric Therapy, we know that each child is unique and we strive to use creative interventions to engage children in rehabilitation activities that are both fun and functional. Together with the child and family in mind, our physiotherapists will help your child spread their wings!
