Welcome to the Children’s Physiotherapy Service

HELLO AND WELCOME

Thank you for visiting our blog page, I am SUPER excited that at The Back and Body Clinic, Moulton we are now able to offer an amazing new Children’s Physiotherapy Service. Hopefully you’re looking at this blog because you’ve heard about this new service already and are intrigued to know more, got children of your own who at some point might need to come and see us or simply to find out a little about us and what we do, either way, welcome!

I should probably start with a little bit about me, who I am and what my background is, so you know who is treating your child…my name is Lucy, I qualified as a physiotherapist from the University of Nottingham and since qualifying have gained a range of paediatric specific experience. I worked for a year in adults doing my core rotations before securing a job as a children’s physio (I have always wanted to work with children so securing that first job was amazing!).

Since then, I have worked as a children’s physiotherapist for the NHS and overseas at New Zealand’s leading children’s hospital (Starship). I have completed Bobath Modules in Normal Child Development and Typical development and utilise Bobath concepts within my treatment. I understand the importance of age; growth and the impacts puberty have on treatment and healing times. I have also completed paediatric specific training in taping, gait analysis (watching and assessing how your child walks!) and child specific sport injuries.

I fully believe children are not just little adults and with every child I see I will take a unique approach on and will utilize play in all therapy sessions to ensure sessions are fun, motivating and your child stays engaged (hopefully!).

So that’s me, to finish off this first post and so you know a little more about what we see and treat here is a little song I have written…some of you may recognize the tune from a famous children’s film which is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

A Chim chiminey new service:

Chim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cher-ee
you’re reading and thinking oh what could this be?
Chim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cher-oo
We have a new service that’s coming to you…

Oh go on we’ll tell you,
We now see children too!

Now seeing as children get injuries too
And we know that they aren’t little versions of you,
They need someone special who understands growth,
Healing times and milestones well Lucy knows both!

Chim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cher-ee
We’re excited, ecstatic but what conditions do we see?
Chim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cher-oo
Cerebral palsy, dyspraxia and broken bones too…

This is by no means exhaustive, just give us a call
We could help teach your baby to learn how to crawl,
We can also see babies who only turn their head to the right,
Or your child who has suddenly doubled in height!

Children need coaxing and need to have fun,
And here at Back and Body that’s exactly what’s done,
The secret ingredient to do this is through play
Whether they’re seeing us for a fracture or developmental delay…

Chim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cher-ee
When you come in and see us, you’re in glad company
Nowhere is there a happier crew
Than us at Back and Body singing chim chim cher-ee, chim cher-oo
