Children's Therapy | Effect Exercise Physiology

Children that experience issues at childbirth, in their early years or during development may find that these issues can affect how they move and participate in exercise or playtime. Struggling to hit developmental milestones may mean that their schooling is affected, they struggle with sports or even find it hard keeping up with friends. Exercise Physiology can address these issues to assist your child make a healthy journey into adulthood.

Helping children with exercise and rehab is quite different to helping adults, from an anatomical, physiological and psychological point of view. At Effect Exercise Physiology we believe that to treat children effectively, all these developmental differences need to be considered.
