About Melbourne Children's Physiotherapy

Melbourne Children’s Physiotherapy was founded to provide high-quality paediatric physiotherapy in the Eastern and South Eastern suburbs.

We take a family and child-centred approach and work towards meaningful goals that are achievable within the context of the child’s life.

We believe it is important for children and young adults to engage in therapy in their natural environments in order to maximise the transfer of skills to their real life and ensure they have ample opportunity to practice their therapy programs outside of therapy sessions.

Services are provided at the child’s home, childcare centre, kindergarten, school or a community location such as the local pool or a park.
