Cavan/Monaghan Physiotherapy Department provides assessment and treatment programmes to children with a disability, and to children suffering from pain, decreased strength or decreased mobility following an illness or injury.
Each child is assessed by a physiotherapist. An individual treatment and management programme is then designed for each child, based on the findings of the assessment. This may involve treatment techniques carried out by the physiotherapist as well as a home management programme being carried out by the child's parent or carer. It may also involve a visit by the physiotherapist to the child's home or school. In some cases, children may also be assessed and provided with equipment to improve their mobility or function.
Physiotherapy services are provided at a number of outpatient clinics throughout Cavan/Monaghan.
