Physiotherapist appointment for children

Look for appointment times

The children’s physiotherapist assesses children’s sensorimotor development and the quality of their movements. They consult on potential risks and help to find suitable personalised exercises and playful activities to support development.A physiotherapist’s appointment includes:

  • Assessing motor performance and its quality
  • The teaching of functional exercises and activities that support development
  • Functional training
  • Teaching home exercises and advice on assistive devices

Complaints prompting a visit:

  • Slowed or delayed learning of motor skills
  • Increased or decreased muscle tone
  • Asymmetry in various positions, transitions or movements (e.g. belly-crawling, hands-and-knees crawling)
  • Posture issues
  • Complaints related to another underlying disease (pain, reduced joint mobility, etc.)

You can also bring your child to see a physiotherapist if you want to assess your child’s development, get personal advice and consciously develop your child’s motor skills.

At the first visit, we will have a conversation, assess the child’s development and, depending on the results, plan the therapy. We will give guidance on home exercises.

During repeated visits, babies receive developmental therapy and older children therapeutic exercises. If necessary, a repeated assessment is carried out during the therapy sessions and a home exercise plan is drawn up.

You do not need a referral from your family doctor to make a paid appointment. A letter of referral is required when you come to an appointment paid by the Health Insurance Fund.

In the case of symptoms characteristic to a cold, please postpone your visit.
