St Leonards Physiotherapy proudly offer quality paediatric physio care to local St Leonards, Cammeray, Crows Nest, North Sydney, Lane Cove & North Shore residents.

Paediatric physiotherapists specialise in the treatment of children and adolescents. Helping children with development or physical conditions is quite different to helping adults from both a physical and psychological perspective.

Jan Redman specialises in the treatment of children and adolescents. In fact, St Leonards Physiotherapy is one of the few private practices that provides a specialised paediatric physiotherapy service.

Jan uses her wealth of knowledge and experience to assess your child’s problems and provide a comprehensive treatment program. This usually involves an individualised exercise program that will help your child regain optimal function.
