When is the best time to start physiotherapy treatment with my child?
Answer As soon as possible! When you notice something is not going well in your child’s development you should see a paediatric physiotherapist for assessment and possible treatments, especially if waiting times for your paediatrician or other examinations are long.
The child’s development in the early years of life goes quickly and is the foundation for a whole life to come. Catching up on missed opportunities and needing to correct abnormal posture and movement is much harder than possibly avoiding problems by commencing treatment early. Posture and movement are like habits, the longer you have an unwanted habit, the harder it is to break.
