About Physiotherapy

  • The Physiotherapy Department at RCH provides clinical services to children and adolescents from birth to 18 years in Victoria. We also provide specialised services to some children living interstate or overseas.

    We offer a wide range of services to both inpatients and outpatients. Our physiotherapists provide assessment, advice and a range of interventions to infants, children and adolescents with musculoskeletal, cardio-respiratory, neurological and other complex problems.

    Our team works closely with families, carers, teachers, doctors and other health professionals to ensure appropriate physiotherapy management for all our patients. Referral from a doctor, nurse or allied health professional is generally required to access either inpatient or outpatient services.

    See Referrals page for more details.
