Kids can get injured just like adults can. They have bones, joints and muscles like the rest of us. However, children can sometimes have other issues as well that are not commonly found in adults. There are a few defining question you can ask about your child:

Is one child not developing like your other children?

Do you sense something is different or unusual about your child?

Does you baby or child have any of these conditions?

  • Abnormal muscle tone
  • ADD and ADHD
  • Autism spectrum disorders
  • Balance and co-ordination difficulties
  • Chronic ear infections
  • Colic
  • Developmental delays
  • Emotional problems
  • Gross motor skill deficits or delays
  • Incoordination
  • Plagiocephaly
  • Reflux and digestive disorders
  • Sensory processing disorders
  • Toe walk
  • Torticollis
Your child may have development imbalances or body tissue restrictions and may benefit from physiotherapy treatment.

Your body’s tissues are all functionally connected, from your head all the way down to your toes. When dysfunctional patterns exist, they tend to be more noticeable in babies and children because they have not yet developed the layers of compensation often found with adults. As a result, the best time to address these issues is when they are still young in order to give them the best chance of reaching their full growth potential.

Early Intervention Is Key!

A child is not just a small adult – they are in an important stage in their lives. For instance, body functions can be improved so that any negative impact the dysfunctions may have had on their little bodies may often also be reversed.

To learn more about pediatric physiotherapy, schedule an appointment with your physiotherapist who is trained in pediatric treatment.

Patient Stories


My daughter suffered a serious back injury which prevented her from training… Within a couple of months of treatment she was able to return to train and compete stronger than ever. I recommend Cedar to all injured athletes

My 3 month old son was diagnosed with a mild case of torticollis (stiff or twisted neck) and plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome). After a referral from my doctor, I decided to bring him to physiotherapy at Cedar. She was wonderful with my son, very gentle and knowledgeable. She showed me a variety of exercises and play activities I could do with my baby in order to help him correct his diagnosis. As a first time mom, this was very helpful in understanding what my son should be able to do at his age and what we could work on improving. After a few visits over a month and a half, my son had made great improvements; his torticollis is no longer a concern and his plagiocephaly is almost corrected. I was very pleased with the outcome of these sessions and I recommend visiting if you have any concern with your baby’s head and neck development
