This is often a passive exercise carried out on the child by the physio or parent but in the older child they can do it themselves. It is a way of stretching tight and sometimes contracted muscles. This is the type of treatment used to treat Positional Talipes and as part of the programme for Erbs Palsy and Knee pain.

A child's physiotherapist loves to have fun. Children are growing all the time and this is why we need to have a full understanding of their musculoskeletal system and the wide variety of conditions affecting children. Each child is an individual and their treatment should reflect this.
