  • Erb’s Palsy or Brachial Plexus lesions
  • Talipes
  • Cerebral Palsy and other neurological conditions and disabilities

Our children’s physiotherapist Carla Presbury will assess your child in a friendly and approachable way. Any treatment sessions are individually tailored to each infants needs and take into account the child’s personality, early life experiences, the family context and any neurological or musculoskeletal conditions. 

Carla has been working in paediatric physiotherapy for 8 years, and is a mum to 3 children. 

In most cases, the earlier assessment and intervention is provided, the greater the improvement in treatment outcomes.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss whether physiotherapy is likely to be beneficial to your child.

No referral is necessary but we welcome referrals from GPs, nurses, paediatricians, other specialists and other allied health staff.
