Article in Somerset County Gazette August 2010
M Bill Physiotherapy offers schools and nurseries an insight
into a proactive approach to the musculo skeletal well being of children.  It also provides a means of informing carers and keeping parents involved.

HOW ORTHOPAEDIC PHYSIOTHERAPISTS WORK IN EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENTS?

 

The Orthopaedic Physiotherapist works with families, carers, teachers, health and other Health professionals such as Occupational Therapists, Podiatrists and other networks to develop integrated management strategies for the child.

 

Management programs can include designing individual treatment programs, and group work for clients with similar needs.

Orthopaedic Physiotherapists provide a service for children with injuries or musculo skeletal needs, so that they have the optimal physical environment in their educational settings.

REFERRING A CHILD TO AN ORTHOPAEDIC PHYSIOTHERAPIST

Your child can be referred for a physiotherapy assessment through your Nursery, School or College  Sister, Doctor or directly by the child's parent/guardian.

 

All are welcome to contact a physiotherapist to discuss the appropriateness of a referral.

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Only one in five parents know how much time children need to spend exercising per day.


School days

There are plenty of ways kids can get active during the school day.


>
Walking to and from school is great exercise. If you have concerns about safety, walk with your children and bring younger siblings along on reins as soon as they’re walking competently. If time is a problem for working parents, is there a local
walk-to-school scheme children can join?


>
Make the walk more fun by telling stories and playing games, like I-spy or spotting different types of car, as you go


>
Give your child a sense of achievement by giving them a pedometer, which
measures the number of steps they take


>
If you’re a teacher or teaching assistant on duty during break time, tell children
about the games you used to play as a child. Show them how to play hopscotch, skipping and tag, for example.

60 active minutes

Only one in five parents know how much time children need to spend exercising per day.


Children should aim to be physically active at a moderate intensity for one hour every day. Their heart rate should increase, but conversation should still be possible. It’s ok to break activity into easier 15-minute slots throughout the day. For more information CLICK HERE
