Little boy with cerebral palsyCentaPaeds has a special interest in helping children with cerebral palsy and related neurological difficulties as these children form the heart of our practice. All our therapists have trained specifically to deal with the complex issues associated with this diagnosis and are committed to working with the children and their families to ensure the best possible outcomes.

Syndromes or Genetic Disorders

Little girl with Down's Syndrome

CentaPaeds Therapy Centre is a specialist paediatric centre and our therapists have extensive experience working with babies and children who have inherited and genetic conditions. Many genetic conditions are associated with delayed development and benefit from early therapy.

Some examples of genetic conditions  seen at CentaPaeds include Down’s Syndrome, Rett’s Syndrome, Angelman’s Syndrome, William’s Syndrome, achondroplasia, neurofibromatosis and mitochondrial disorders. We also have experience in treating children with muscular dystrophies such as Duchenne's and Becker's Dystrophies.

Orthopaedic problems or neuropathies

Little girl giving the thumbs upChildren with orthopaedic problems do not respond well to adult type rehabilitation. At CentaPaeds Therapy Centre we have the ideal set-up and equipment to make therapy fun and effective. We also have the expertise to address any developmental issues which often occur when the normal developmental processes are interrupted following orthopaedic problems.

Some examples of orthopaedic conditions we have experience in treating include scoliosis, torticollis and other postural deformities; leg length discrepancies (illizarof frame), club feet, peripheral neuropathies (eg. Erb’s palsy), contractures, post-orthoapaedic surgery (eg. internal fixation and bone graphs for pseudoarthrosis and muscle lengthenings in cerebral palsy).

If your child has any of these conditions we would be happy to discuss possible treatment options with you. Please, contact CentaPaeds Paediatric Therapy Centre.
