Keeping Me Well - Cardiff and Vale University Hospital

Children's Physiotherapy

Children are treated by paediatric physiotherapists for a wide variety of conditions.

We see children as a result of:

  • injuries
  • surgery
  • normal variations in development
  • childhood disability
Support my child

We work with newborn babies to teenagers at the end of their full-time education, whose physical and gross motor skills development impact on their lives. 

In Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, we see children in different settings including:

  • Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales
  • Children’s Centre’s
  • Special Schools
  • nurseries
  • schools
  • at home.
The Children’s Physiotherapy Therapy Service in Cardiff and the Vale works with children, their families, schools and other health professionals.  We are here to support families, and those within the child’s support network, when they need us.

Initial assessment

As a first step, we may conduct observation and a physical examination. This can include looking at the child’s strength and co-ordination, motor development, posture, balance, respiratory needs, function and abilities.

Individual advice would then be tailored for you and your child to follow.
