At Balanced Paediatric Therapy, we support children with a range of musculoskeletal conditions to increase their strength and reach their developmental goals.
Children’s Physiotherapists use non-invasive assessments to evaluate your child’s muscle strength, flexibility, joint mobility, co-ordination, balance and progress in gross motor skills. Clients and their families/carers actively participate in setting goals for the personalised treatment plan, and we collaborate with the child and family/carers to establish a home-based exercise program when necessary.
We use a play-based approach to sessions and prioritise your child’s engagement, aiming to move and challenge children’s bodies and minds but most of all having fun is our biggest priority.
Life’s all about balance!

We can provide services to clients who are participants of the NDIS through plan managed and self managed funding schemes.

do you offer home or school visits?
We may be able to offer school, day care or home visits, however this is not offered out of convenience. It is offered at the discretion of the therapist and within our service capacity.
In-person interactions with your child at school or home are typically briefer, often around 30 minutes, to allow essential communication between educators and/or caregivers and to optimise the effectiveness of therapy.
