Jump Start Kids Physiotherapy

Welcome to Jump Start Kids Physiotherapy

Specialised paediatric physiotherapy clinic

We provide tailored treatments for children of all ages in the Wollongong and Illawarra region. We are also a mobile clinic and can come to you in a comfortable, familiar environment, including schools, day care, or local parks and playgrounds.

Tailored Treatments

Children are not little adults and their needs are very different. A unique program, customised to each individual stage of development, is vital to achieve the best outcome.

Quality Outcomes

We aim to work with you and your child to deliver the best outcome. We are passionate about working with children and will provide your child with the care and attention they deserve.

Babies and Toddlers

If you have concerns about a flat spot developing on your babies head, or your baby is not rolling or sitting, they may need a little extra help from us.

Neurological Conditions

We specialise in children with autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other neurological conditions. These conditions may cause poor balance, coordination, and gross motor delay.

Musculoskeletal Conditions​

Children can be busy and may need help with rehabilitation following a sports injury, broken bones, pain in their joints or muscles, or may have juvenile arthritis.
