Topic of the Month – Paediatrics

Each month the Physiopedia team focuses on updating pages centred around one topic. This enables us to keep improving all of our existing pages as well as creating new ones. The team focuses on updating references and ensuring there are no formatting errors but most important of all they search for the latest evidence and update the pages accordingly. This month our team of volunteers focused on the topic  Paediatrics.

Paediatric physiotherapy / physical therapy can encompass a wide range of conditions ranging from conditions that  affect development to trauma and injuries.  Children are active and inquisitive and you may find yourself faced with an array of different injuries and conditions.  Over the last few years there has been a rise in the number paediatric ACL injuries, read about the prevention and management of this potentially life changing injury here.

As well as looking at child developmental milestones and injuries the team has also been busy reviewing and creating pages, on assessmentconditions, interventions and outcome measures, to bring the best information to your fingertips.  You can browse through the category here to see some of the newly reviewed and created pages.  We have even updated some of the videos!

We aim to review as many pages as possible each month and create pages that are needed but if you see pages that need improving or creating, not just on topic of the month, please feel free to contact us with your comments.  Physiopedia is a resource created by physiotherapists for physiotherapists.  Your feedback is necessary and always welcome.
