Physiotherapy For Kids

Our Mission

At Tree's Physiotherapy, we are committed to really understanding each child holistically and focusing on what their abilities and dreams are. We look beyond limitations to a child's greatest potential and meet each family where they are at on their journey.  We  provide high quality, targeted therapy to your child in our purpose-designed clinic, park or within the comfort of your own home.

Children learn skills best when they are engaged and having fun, so therapy is embedded in play and imagination. Our physiotherapy is evidence-based, using the latest scientific research to guide assessment and treatment. 

We can assist with a wide range of conditions in childhood, including; babies with developmental delay, children with disabilities, chronic conditions and pain or children with poor balance and co-oordination.
