What do you love most about Paediatric Physio? Kids keep you on your toes! You never know what is coming next! Every session needs to be fresh and dynamic, you need to be creative and use your imagination to keep them engaged. It is incredibly rewarding to see children surprised, and inspired by the way their bodies move and proud of what they achieve.
