How we care For your child Physiotherapy Accessing physiotherapy at Haven House initially involves an assessment of your child’s physical needs to identify the level of input required. Following an assessment, physiotherapy sessions work towards improving/maintaining your child’s joint range of movement, muscle strength, balance and co-ordination to maximise function. Physiotherapy may also involve devising a personalised exercise programme that can be carried out at home or setting up a postural management programme to minimise further deterioration in your child’s posture. Additionally, assessments can take place for specialist equipment, if it is felt that your child may benefit from a piece of specialist equipment to either aid function or support postural management. Physiotherapy is offered at Haven House by Donna Nicol, a skilled and experienced paediatric physiotherapist. The service at Haven House is supplementary to the NHS and close liaison takes place between services.
