At Physio Alive, we are passionate about moving well and being active at all stages of life, starting from the very beginning. We work holistically, treating both the child as well as working with parents and schools/other care providers where necessary. Physio Alive director, Brea Cranage is particularly passionate about providing paediatric services, has completed further training in this field and sees many children under the NDIS scheme. Our team members Aleisha Robinson and Courtney Jones also see paediatric patients regularly both on land and in the water. We currently utilise pools in McLaren Vale, Seaford and Noarlunga for our water-based services, and have onsite gym facilities at both McLaren Vale and Aldinga.
Our musculoskeletal and sports physio team- Matt, Megan, Janhavi, Yasmin, Aleisha and Courtney are also experienced in treating musculoskeletal and sports injuries in children and young athletes.
We offer individualised assessments and treatment programs tailored to meet each child’s needs and offer 1:1 land-based and pool-based sessions. Paediatric physiotherapy, including land-based exercise and hydrotherapy, can benefit a range of conditions including but not limited to:
Gross motor and coordination delays
Autism spectrum disorder
such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and others
such as juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
such as cancers, cystic fibrosis and others
Wry neck and torticollis in babies or children

Physio Alive is registered to provide paediatric physiotherapy services under the NDIS scheme, and we work collaboratively with the entire team to optimise outcomes for children and teenagers. We are able to provide services under self-managed and plan-managed NDIS plans. Please contact our reception staff if you would like any further information.
