Paediatric physical therapist
The Author: Veselības centrs 4
After a child is born, an observation might be enough, but sometimes a rehabilitation course is necessary. Physical therapy is required, if the child has low or high muscle tone, which is especially important for prematurely born babies.
A physical therapist should be sought out urgently, if the child experiences motor development delay. Physical therapy is required, if the child has such congenital pathologies as torticollis, hip displacement, a crooked foot, plexus brachialis injury, birth trauma (clavicle fracture, etc.).
A physical therapist creates a treatment plan, if one is required, and ensures its fulfilment.
