Now let's learn some major pediatric conditions faced by children throughout the world

Scoliosis is a curvature in the spine that develops as the child grows, the condition can become worse if left untreated in an early stage. Scoliosis can be diagnosed with

  • Uneven posture
  • Protruding ribs
  • Pain in the spine
  • Uneven Shoulders
  • Difficulty in breathing

Physio for kids is extremely important for scoliosis in children which can be very normal at the beginning but can get worse with time. The main symptom is, the muscles along the affected side will grow unevenly. The symptoms will be physically visible, in the spinal and rib region. When untreated, scoliosis will develop a deeper curve in the spine and will push the rib against your child’s lungs making it hard for them to breathe. If you see any symptoms in your child please bring them to our pediatric physiotherapy clinic. We will provide child physiotherapy treatment at our Edmonton clinic for the improvement of your child’s physical condition and breathing ability. If not treated at an early stage scoliosis can lead to permanent damage, when time passes it will be painful for the kid. The main problems faced by a child will be

  • Shortness of breath
  • Misaligned spine
  • Difficulty in movement
  • Back pain…

Our pediatric occupational therapy in Edmonton can treat such conditions effectively and provide relief to your kid as soon as possible.

There are two types of cerebral palsy occurring in kids

Congenital – The one where the child is born with such a condition or develops it soon after birth. The exact cause is unknown and many conditions may  supplement the condition.

Acquired – An acquired cerebral palsy is due to the brain damage caused after birth, it may be due to a car accident or any other harsh injuries.

Pediatric physiotherapy is highly effective in treating children with Cerebral Palsy and has proven to provide improved results even in extreme cases. The word cerebral refers to a part of the brain that controls movement and palsy refers to weakness. Cerebral Palsy leads to poor motor control & motion in children. A child with cerebral palsy may often find it difficult to move with his legs and will find it difficult to grab onto things. This will put pressure on the parents as well as the child, the condition can be diagnosed at an early age of the child. Treatment is mandatory for every child who is going through Cerebral palsy. Our treatment for cerebral palsy will be easy on the kid and parents as well, you can easily see clean results within certain consecutive sessions. Cerebral palsy needs physiotherapy attention to improve the conscious state of your child’s mind.

During a Cerebral Palsy physiotherapy session in our clinic in Edmonton, we will condition the muscles by giving them motor movements. We will observe the child as they move and we will provide activities that are necessary for the improvement of their motor skills. Cerebral palsy mainly affects the hands and legs, since these are the basics for motor movements all our training will be to improve the hand and leg functions. There are cases where other parts of the body are affected, we also have specific conditioning treatments for treating them as well. Without professional assistance, your child may face more trauma that cannot be understood as a common person. We provide occupational therapies to make your kid do their own work including loo and pee to bring self-confidence in the child and to ease the condition of the parents.

Cerebral Palsy & Postural Dysfunction

Without giving treatment for Cerebral palsy, the condition can worsen and lead to postural dysfunctions. Here the posture of the child gets affected due to the weak brain portion and this can easily be treated by Family Physiotherapy. We give proven well-engineered motor function activities to activate the portion of the brain and muscle that needs special attention. Please give us a visit to know more and improve your child’s condition. 

Congenital muscular torticollis is a condition that a child develops even before birth, this can be easily identified with a tilt in the neck region. The tilt can become prone to the naked eye within 6 to 8 weeks after childbirth. The condition will lead to neck pain, difficulty turning, improper posture and even hearing problems. Pediatric physiotherapy Edmonton for congenital muscular Torticollis is given at our Family physiotherapy clinic. We do it with the help of occupational, physical, child, and neurological expert therapists at our clinic. 

Hyperlexia is a differentiated reading condition where your child will have abnormal reading abilities but won’t understand what they read. This can be easily diagnosed with an interest of your kid in numbers and the alphabet.
