Children and Young People’s Physiotherapy

What we do

Community Children and Young People’s Physiotherapy Service provides specialist assessment and a range of therapeutic interventions to help your child reach their full potential by promoting normal movement, maximising function and independence, thereby improving quality of life and well-being.

We strive to work with children and their families/carers in a variety of settings to provide education and advice on therapeutic activities, to either maintain or to develop functional skills.

We work across Warwickshire and are based in Warwick, Rugby and Nuneaton. All physiotherapists are regulated by The Health and Care Professions Council.

Information about our service

What to expect

Referrals will be triaged and accepted if they meet our referral criteria. Our current service provides a graduated approach.

  • Universal offer-this approach is available to all.
  • Targeted approach- if a need is identified that may benefit from further assessment and advice to be embedded into daily activities.
  • Direct therapy- If a significant need is identified requiring direct Physiotherapy intervention.

If an assessment is offered this will be tailored to identify your child's difficulties and plan treatment accordingly. Support offered is based on the outcome of the assessment, the impact of the difficulty on the child's life and the likelihood of being able to achieve change at this time. Your child may be assessed either face to face usually in clinic or virtually over the phone/video call.

Our Physiotherapists will work together with children/young people and their families, to enable them to make choices about their physiotherapy goals.

Home exercise programme/activity advice is the most important element of physiotherapy treatment for your child. It is crucial this is followed regularly as prescribed by your Physiotherapist. Follow up appointments may be offered depending on the intervention and your goals. In some cases, advice may be given to school and your child may be referred to other healthcare professionals.
