Sue Close of Broadstone Physiotherapy

Children continuously grow and develop – creating constant change and demands on their bodies. A Paediatric Physio understands these physical complexities as well as the emotional needs of children and their levels of understanding. At Broadstone Physiotherapy, we can provide reassurance and guidance as well as injury prevention strategies.Treatment is fun, effective and age appropriate. For optimal results we offer home programmes of stretches and exercise.
