Are you the next member of the Little Movers Physiotherapy team? We looking for a passionate physiotherapist to join our caring, supportive and growing team from January 2021. 

 

About us

We are a team of passionate physiotherapists who work collaboratively with families to develop meaningful goals and implement routines-based physiotherapy interventions for paediatric patients. The Little Movers Physiotherapy clinic is located in Yarraville and we also provide home, school and community visits to children living in the western suburbs of Melbourne (Yarraville – Werribee).

 

We have a culture in which knowledge and questions are shared openly, team brainstorming is encouraged during regular in-house PD sessions, and we support each other to continually develop our expertise and skills in order to provide the best possible service to the families we work with. We value our close relationships with other allied health teams, paediatricians, GPs, and hospitals, and we understand the importance of maintaining a high level of communication with the child’s whole healthcare team.   

The caseload

The caseload is varied and includes neurological, genetic, neuromuscular, complex medical and musculoskeletal conditions in addition to Autism Spectrum Disorders. We work with children from birth through to adolescence, however most of our caseload is infants and primary school aged children.
