Musculoskeletal and Orthopaedic Conditions

Does your child seem to be moving differently, or are they reporting a new pain or area of body discomfort without having experienced a significant injury? If this is the case, they may be showing signs of a musculoskeletal or orthopaedic condition that could be impacting their bones, muscles, tendons, or ligaments. These conditions can range from mild to severe, and can affect a child’s ability to move, play, and perform daily activities.

At Butterfly, our physiotherapists are experienced in treating a variety of musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions, including but not limited to brachial plexus injury, scoliosis, hip dysplasia, legg calve perthes disease, limb length discrepancy, osgood schlatter’s disease, sever’s disease and club foot.

Your physiotherapist will begin by performing a comprehensive assessment of your child. This involves observation of posture and body alignment, joint range of motion, muscular strength, functional movement, as well as your child’s overall gross motor skills. Based on your child’s assessment findings, your physiotherapist will then develop an appropriate treatment plan specific to your child’s needs. This may include using a combination of manual therapy, muscle stretching, muscle strengthening, balance training, education and pain management techniques to effectively help your child. We will help you and your child with activity management, in order to optimize daily function.

Why Butterfly?

We understand that your child’s musculoskeletal and orthopaedic condition can be a cause for concern, and it’s not always easy to know when to seek help. Our team at Butterfly recognizes that a child’s musculoskeletal system is still developing, and therefore needs to be treated differently than an adult. Our therapists have undergone further education in paediatric orthopaedic conditions, and take a comprehensive approach to assessment and treatment. Our focus is on assessing each child’s unique needs and developing personalized treatment plans. With our care and support, we will assist your child in returning to play, help increase their confidence, and reach their highest level of functioning and independence.
