About us

We are a team of passionate physiotherapists who work collaboratively with children and their families to develop meaningful goals and implement evidence-based physiotherapy interventions. The Little Movers Physiotherapy clinic base is located in Yarraville within the Sum of Us Kids Therapy Hub where we work alongside other paediatric allied health professionals and we provide home, school and community visits to children living in the western suburbs of Melbourne.
