Paediatric Physiotherapy Yarraville

Physiotherapy for children of all ages in Yarraville, Melbourne. 

Our Yarraville clinic is located within the Sum of Us Kids Therapy Hub, 98 Somerville Rd Yarraville 3013 where we work alongside a team of Paediatric Allied Health Professionals including Paediatric Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Play Therapists and Psychologists in a space designed for children. The clinic is wheelchair accessible with baby change facilities on site.

  • Concerns about delayed gross motor development

  • Feeling too stiff or floppy to handle

  • Difficulty with tummy time

  • A preference to turn the head one way and/or a flat head

  • Asymmetry (e.g., moving one arm/leg more than the other)

  • Prematurity

  • Diagnosed conditions (genetic conditions e.g., Down Syndrome, neurological conditions e.g., Cerebral Palsy, neuromuscular conditions, complex medical conditions)


Preschoolers and school aged children:

  • Concerns about gait (walking/running) e.g., limping or toe walking

  • Clumsiness/frequent falls

  • Fatigue/difficulty keeping up with other children their age

  • Pain

  • Asymmetry (moving one side more than the other)

  • Diagnosed conditions (e.g., genetic conditions, neurological conditions, neuromuscular conditions, complex medical conditions)

  • Specialised equipment prescription

  • Sports injuries

Our Physiotherapists use a 'strengths based', family centred approach when working with children and their families. They are trained in various standardised assessments which can be used to gain a deeper understanding of gross motor skills and development, to guide intervention and when eligible, support applications for Early Intervention funding. Some of the assessments our Physios may use include the Alberta Infant Motor Scale, the Hammersmith Infant Neurological Examination, the Movement ABC and Prechtl's General Movements Assessment. 


Appointments can be made using the button below. We are open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. There is plenty of parking on Somerville Rd outside the clinic and in surrounding side streets (Gamon St and Regent St). Referrals are not essential, but it is helpful to have reports from your child’s Paediatrician, GP, or other healthcare providers prior to your appointment to make the appointment time as productive as possible.
