Children's Physio Dorset was established by Maggie Dawson in 2022 to provide the highest level of quality specialist Paediatric Physiotherapy in a flexible and comfortable environment at times convenient to children and their families. Physiotherapy assessment and treatment is provided to all children from age 0 into early adulthood. All assessments and treatments are discussed in full and are tailored to your individual needs based on age, gender, condition, severity and goals. We can work with your local NHS and school therapy team to ensure the best possible outcome for your child. Sessions are carried out at your home or child's school/nursery and we bring all the equipment with us from toys, to gym balls, to estim machines and everything in between that we may need. 

 We can also provide virtual appointments or phone consultations. This is useful if you live further afield, are shielding, or require assessment and advice only. This also works well for developmental assessments if you have any concerns regarding your child's gross or fine motor development. 

Maggie has been fantastic with my 21 month old. She made the sessions fun and interactive and has given us some really useful tips and exercises to take away.
Would highly recommend, very knowledgeable and got on great with both of my children!

Children are not just small adultsDollarphotoclub_13786186.jpg

Children's physiotherapy is a very niche, specialist area and it is vital that your child receives therapy from a trained and qualified paediatric physiotherapist. Especially with sporting injuries, children and adolescents are not small adults, they are still growing and developing and require specialist assessment and intervention to ensure they make a full recovery and get back to performing at the highest level. Early intervention ensures the best possible outcome regardless of your child's condition or problem.

Whether your child has a congenital condition, musculoskeletal problem, neurodevelopmental condition or requires intensive rehabilitation following an acquired or traumatic brain injury, Children’s Physio Dorset can provide an excellent assessment of your child, and deliver highly specialised treatment at very competitive local rates.

Please use the contact page whether you want to have an informal chat to discuss your child’s needs further, or to book an appointment.
