Physiotherapy service

What we do

We are an integrated health and social care Physiotherapy team working with children and young people (0-19) who have physical and learning difficulties across Warwickshire. Our physiotherapists aim to help your child reach their full potential through providing physical intervention, advice and support. We work with children and their families/ carers in a variety of settings, including schools, nurseries and home. Download referral criteria.

We are part of the Integrated Disability Service (IDS) which brings together professionals from Education and Health & Social Care. There are three Physiotherapy teams covering Warwickshire - South (based at Saltisford Office Park in Warwick), East (based at The Orchard Centre Rugby) and North (based at St Nicholas Park in Nuneaton). All qualified Physiotherapists are registered with the Health Professions Council.

Physiotherapy uses specialist techniques to help people with conditions that affect their movement. Our therapy sessions are always child-centred and techniques are often introduced through play for younger children.

Common conditions we treat include:

• Cerebral Palsy
• Gross motor delay
• Down Syndrome
• Co-Ordination Difficulties
• Muscular Dystrophy
• Toe Walking
• Plagiocephaly and Torticollis

We will liaise with and/or refer to other services that your child may benefit from, such as orthotics, occupational therapy and key workers

Special Schools:

We have physiotherapy teams based in special schools across Warwickshire. Children and young people who attend a special school and have been referred to our service, will receive the majority of their treatment in school. The physiotherapy teams work alongside school staff to promote the integration of physiotherapy, postural care and physical wellbeing into the daily school routine.

Preparing for your appointment

Assessment: Most children are assessed in a clinic. On occasions it may be more appropriate to assess your child at home or in school.

A physiotherapist will often need to undress a child to examine them. Babies and younger children should wear clothes that are easily removable. Older children may want to bring shorts and T-shirts or wear tracksuit bottoms to the appointment.
