Physiotherapist Mim, is part of our amazing team at the Kites Children’s Therapy Centre (link opens in new window) She works primarily with children with disability to help them move and do things they have difficulty accomplishing. Therefore her sessions are always fun, and always play based.
- walking and movement
- ball skills and balance
- awareness of body in space
- muscle and joint function
Sometimes it’s exercise and play like hoola hooping or balancing that an individual needs or sometimes It’s other things like a splint or shoes. These help children to engage with the rest of their friends. As a result, Physiotherapy helps people do the same things their peers are doing, so they can continue to be social.
What is the best thing about being a Physiotherapist?
Seeing people do stuff they never thought they could do! I work with children a lot, until they are 6 or 7 years old during the pivotal developmental years, and check on them throughout their lives.Physio Mim
Has the NDIS made a difference?
The NDIS has helped so many clients. They now have access to the funds to gain the therapy they need. Consequently, before NDIS I would only see this person once a month now I can see them once a week to help with their ongoing development.Physio Mim
