The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Physiotherapy

The physiotherapy team will initially assess your child's arm and discuss with you their findings. We will use a combination of exercises to maintain their joint movement and to strengthen their muscles. We will instruct you in how to perform these exercises as part of a home exercise regimen. Providing information on their injury, treatment and the rehabilitation process is also an important part of the therapy sessions.

You will be continually monitored either in the consultant out-patient clinics or with regular physiotherapy appointments. The overall aim at all stages is to help your child with their recovery and to improve the movement, strength and function of their arm based on their individual needs.
