Why should I choose Leeds Children’s Physiotherapy?

It is important to recognize that children are not simply ‘small adults’. Caring for children and adolescents with musculoskeletal problems, is a highly specialised area of physiotherapy. Many physiotherapists familiar with treating adults, will have had little or no experience of assessing and treating children or adolescents.

Leeds Children’s Physiotherapy provides the opportunity to seek professional advice and treatment, from experts in the field of paediatric musculoskeletal Physiotherapy.
