At Ribble Valley Children's Physiotherapy, we are proud to be one of the leading providers of paediatric physiotherapy services in Lancashire. With a specialised focus on congenital conditions, such as Torticollis, Plagiocephaly, Brachycephaly, Erb's Palsy, Shoulder Dystocia, and Clubfoot, our expert team of children's physiotherapists are dedicated to helping young patients achieve their full potential through targeted interventions and personalised care.

Comprehensive Paediatric Physiotherapy

Our Lancashire Physiotherapy professionals understand the unique challenges faced by children with congenital conditions. Our approach combines advanced techniques, evidence-based practices, and compassionate care to address each child's specific needs. Through close collaboration with parents, caregivers, and other healthcare professionals, we create tailored treatment plans that optimise outcomes for our resilient young patients.

Physiotherapy for Torticollis

Torticollis, characterised by the tilting or rotation of the head, can be effectively treated at our paediatric physiotherapy clinic in Lancashire. Our skilled children's physiotherapists employ gentle stretches, exercises, and manual therapy techniques to improve neck mobility, correcting muscle imbalances, and promoting optimal development.

Plagiocephaly & Brachycephaly Physio

Plagiocephaly and Brachycephaly are conditions that result in asymmetrical or flattened head shapes in infants. Our children's physiotherapists utilise a range of strategies, including repositioning techniques and age-appropriate exercises, to guide cranial growth and ensure  optimal outcomes. We also work very closely with a number of orthotic services, where appropriate, should our physiotherapists feel your child would benefit from helmet provision. 

Physiotherapy for Erb's Palsy

Erb's Palsy, a condition affecting the brachial plexus nerves, can lead to weakness or paralysis in the affected arm. Our expert physiotherapists employ a comprehensive approach, combining strengthening exercises, range-of-motion exercises, sensory integration techniques, electrical stimulation (where appropriate) and adaptive strategies to promote recovery and functional independence.

Shoulder Dystocia

Shoulder Dystocia, a birth complication that occurs when a baby's shoulder becomes stuck during delivery, can result in nerve injuries and musculoskeletal problems. We provide gentle and effective techniques, such as stretching, strengthening exercises, and neuromuscular reeducation, to promote healing, restore normal range of motion and enhance motor skills development.

Clubfoot Physio

Clubfoot, a congenital deformity of the foot, can be corrected with  collaborative working between our specialised physiotherapy department and external Orthopaedic services. Our Lancashire based children's physiotherapists work to implement  appropriate stretches, strengthening and developmental exercises to improve your child's overall function and wellbeing. These specific techniques aim to gradually realign the foot, allowing the child to achieve their gull gross motor potential.
