Physiopaed is the association of Swiss therapists specialising in the field of paediatric physiotherapy.
Physiopaed has developed a detailed professional profile for paediatric physiotherapists. It describes the training, the skills, the field of activity and treatment objectives. The physiotherapists take the specifications of the health insurance into account and practise their profession within the legal framework.
Children’s physiotherapists treat children from birth to adolescence who are delayed or impaired in their sensomotoric development. They work closely with paediatricians, orthopaedic technicians, teachers and other specialists.
Child physiotherapists are highly qualified contact points for parents and caregivers in case of questions, uncertainties and problems concerning the sensomotoric development of their children.
