Business in the Spotlight: Just for Kids Physiotherapy

Cathy Molloy at Just for Kids Physiotherapy is a titled paediatric physiotherapist skilled in the assessment and treatment of a wide range of conditions affecting the movement, motor, and musculoskeletal development of children of all ages – from infancy through to adolescents.

Paediatric physiotherapy is a speciality area of physiotherapy. Children are anatomically, physically, and psychologically different to adults and so require interventions which reflect this difference. Just ask a 6 year old to do 10 squats and you’ll understand!
