Physiotherapist / fisioterapeut
I am a qualified physiotherapist with over 30 years of experience in the field of paediatric neurodevelopmental therapy. I have completed a number of courses in the area as well as in movement analysis and education strategies (M.A.E.S), which has broadened my scope of therapy and assessment approaches. I am passionate about helping each child reach their full potential through teamwork with their parents and other professionals.
As a paediatric physiotherapist, I assess and treat babies, children and adolescents with developmental or movement difficulties. It is important to note that children develop in a typical manner, with movement and play laying a strong foundation for their motor skills, visual skills and speech.
Children who experience movement difficulties struggle to explore how their bodies work thereby limiting their interaction with their environment. These children require assistance/guidance to grow and learn.
Practice Number: 7216602
At This Practice, We Use Physiotherapy to Assist with the Following Conditions:
Initially we selected to engage the service of Bridget due to her very good reputation, attending to special needs children. Our family came to know Bridget as compassionate, professional, and well experienced and always keeping abreast of the new developments and new treatment option for children challenged with cerebral palsy.
Bridget has always been extremely helpful and honest, engaging us to determine the correct course of treatment, teaming up with other disciplines in the medical treatment for our son. Often, she assists us to carefully explain the advantages and disadvantages of certain treatments as well as the various options of treatments, which eases our decision making process.
It is said, children will chose who they engage and will be brutally honest in their reaction to others. Bridget has formed an excellent relationship with Gerhardt and he always look forward to the next visit with her, although physiotherapy is hard on him, they form a good team. She always varies her treatment with him, ensuring that he engages and interacts with her, addressing his limitation in ability.
We would highly recommend Bridget as physiotherapist to everyone.
We would love to hear from you
