Orthopaedics

Western Kids Health is a clinic dedicated to paediatrics. Our physios understand growth and development and the different conditions and injuries that can occur during this time period. Our physios are skilled in the assessment postures and walking and can identify when prompt referral for imaging or to a specialist is needed. Some of the conditions/injuries assessed and managed by our therapists include:

  • Knock knees
  • Bowed legs
  • In-toeing/out-toeing
  • Toe-walking
  • Perthes
  • Flat feet
  • Post fracture management
  • Back and neck pain
  • Favouring one leg

The management of many of these conditions involves:

  • Education and reassurance around normal development and for injuries, healing time frames
  • Exercise programs focussing on muscle length, strength, edurance, propricoeption/balance and control
  • Graded return to play programs
  • Load management advice
  • Referral to other health professionals and specialists when required
