Leapfrog Physiotherapy is a community-based mobile paediatric physiotherapy service
Leapfrog Physiotherapy provides land-based physiotherapy and hydrotherapy services all over Adelaide, including the Adelaide Hills and parts of the Fleurieu. We are passionate about providing high quality service to infants, children, young adults and their families within their own environment - at home, school, kindergarten, child care and the local playground or pool.
We work with a team based approach to share goals and strategies with your child's carers, teachers and therapy team to offer consistent and cohesive input.
Even before they are born, babies and children develop their strength and skills through play and experimentation. Facilitating play-based therapy helps children remain engaged and motivated to learn and achieve.
As a mobile service, we travel to your child's home, school or place of care to provide tailored therapy solutions based on their environment and needs. This can include initial assessments, NDIA reports, rehabilitation, facilitating walking and running patterns, developing play and gross motor skills and prescribing mobility and positioning equipment.
Hydrotherapy is a fantastic way to develop core strength, coordination and endurance in a fun and challenging environment. We offer hydrotherapy at several locations, including Stirling, Marion, Melrose Park and North Adelaide - please contact us to determine what location and times may suit you and your child best.
