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

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

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

It can be very normal at the beginning and can get worse with growth, 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 betterment and improvement of your child’s physical condition and breathing ability. If not treated at an early stage it can lead to permanent damage, when time passes it will be painful for the kid as it matures. The main problems faced by a child will be

  • Shortness of breath
  • Physically differentiated look from other kids
  • Spinal movement difficulty
  • Back pains

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 the child. 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 puts pressure on the parents as well as the child, it can be diagnosed at an early age of the child. Treatment is mandatory for every child having Cerebral palsy. Our treatment for cerebral palsy will be easy on the kid and parents as well, you can easily see good results within certain consecutive sessions. This condition needs physiotherapy attention to improve the state of your child.

During a Cerebral Palsy physiotherapy session in our clinic Edmonton, we will condition the muscles by giving them motor movements. We will observe the child as he moves and will provide activities that are necessary for the improvement of 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. Whatever the condition may be, a child with any condition will need professional assistance. Without professional assistance, the child may face more traumas that cannot be understood as a common person. We provide occupational therapies to make the 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 with physiotherapy sessions. We give proven well-engineered motor functions to activate the portion of the brain and muscle that needs special attention. Please give us a visit to know more about 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 may be 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 in 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 alphabets. If your child shows exceptional reading ability beyond their age and does not understand what she reads, then it should be taken care of. Because the situation will continue as the baby ages.
