Physiotherapist ready to talk!

Hello everyone, I am a physiotherapist who works with children with special needs and I know from my experience how confusing it can be to be a parent in such situations. It can be hard to figure out what is the best choice for your child so I’m here to try to help and talk more about the things that interest you! Feel free to ask anything about the choice of therapy, diagnosis, emotional support or anything that comes to mind!

    Hello @Kristina_PT - I'm delighted to welcome you to the community as a long-retired physio who specialised in treating children with Cerebral Palsy. It's great to 'meet' you, & I hope you join in with discussions of interest. Your input will indeed be very helpful to some parents.
    Just to add that one of the forum's house rules, see:   is not to give medical advice, so perhaps discussing a 'diagnosis' may be difficult, but everything else will be most welcome.
    I look forward to seeing you around the forum, & thank you for joining.
