Physiotherapy Treatment

Physiotherapy should always start with a good examination of the child and a thorough history taking. Once the diagnosis is made, the treatment program can be planned and is usually designed to correct muscle imbalances and decrease joint stiffness.

However, when dealing with children, it is vitally important to provide education to the child and the parents about the condition. This is because the child will continue growing and small problems can worsen if not corrected early. The importance of correct postures, schoolbags, beds and chairs should be understood as well as the need for correct exercise and appropriate lifestyle modifications.
