Paediatric Neuro Rehabilitation encompasses Neurological Physiotherapy treatment for children and adolescents with an injury, illness or condition that results in neurological change.
Neuro paediatric rehabilitation is tailored to the unique needs of each individual child or adolescent with the primary goal to maximise their independence and quality of life in their homes; schools, sporting and leisure pursuits for now and the future.
The World Health Organisation has defined Rehabilitation as “An Active process by which those affected by injury or disease achieve a full recovery or, if a full recovery is not possible, realize their optimal physical, mental and social potential and are integrated into their most appropriate environment”.
