We look at every child and their family as individuals and offer the most appropriate treatment to ensure the best possible approach for them, believing that children and young people can achieve anything! Below is a list of some of the highly specialised treatments we have to offer:

  • Personal exercise programmes

  • Strength training
  • Stretching, positioning and postural management

A truly amazing story is that of Natasha, it was decided if Natasha was able to learn to weight bear on her legs the planned surgery would not be necessary...a challenge the Positive Steps team were definitely up for, a challenge that we achieved! Natasha's Dad said "Positive Steps Physiotherapy has been amazing...It's changed all our lives thank you SO much!"
