    Welcome to the community @Sootica12 :) There's some information from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy  and more on Physical Therapy.  Please keep us updated and let us know if you have any questions.

    Hi @Sootica12
    Thank you for your post and it's good to meet you.
    Physiotherapy is extremely important to children with CP, it helps to increase mobility in the limbs, builds strength and can help improve balance and dexterity. The best place to find data would probably be The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.
    From personal experience, I can say that I benefitted hugely from physiotherapy, even if I didn't particularly enjoy it at the time! Without it, I would probably not be as mobile as I am today.
