Paediatric physiotherapy

  • Service
  • Helsinki
  • Public service

Based on the assessment, we will plan the therapy appointments and group or home exercises necessary for the child. We will cooperate with the child and the child’s parents and immediate network. We will also encourage the whole family to enjoy daily exercise.

Paediatric physiotherapy is intended for children under school age and primary pupils. Referrals for physiotherapy can be made by a doctor, nurse, speech or occupational therapist, child health clinic psychologist or an employee in specialised healthcare or early childhood education.

Physiotherapy is provided at the family centres and physiotherapy clinics.

Paediatric physiotherapy is free of charge.
