Specialised paediatric physiotherapy for babies, children and teens
Welcome to Jump Start Physiotherapy
We are a specialised paediatric physiotherapy clinic providing 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.
We aim to work with you and your child to deliver the best outcome. Our tailored treatment plans ensure your child receives the best possible result. Our staff are passionate about working with children and they will provide your child with the care and attention they deserve.
How We Can Help
We provide a range of quality treatment options for your child. 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.
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.
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.
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.
