A leading provider of paediatric physiotherapy in Stockport.

Our specialist children’s physiotherapy and podiatry team offer expert advice and support for developmental musculoskeletal movement problems, and foot and lower limb conditions in children and young people.

Children have a unique skeletal system, they are not mini versions of adults and their bodies are not fully mature often until they reach their early twenties.

Each child needs to be assessed as an individual and their age and development needs to be included in their assessment and treatment to ensure they grow and thrive to reach their full potential.

A medical referral is not required and we can book you and your child in for an initial consultation quickly easily.

Specialist Children's Podiatry

Our specialist children’s or paediatric podiatry and orthotics offers specialist expertise in children’s musculoskeletal development and congenital, developmental, and acquired conditions or injuries that can affect the feet and lower limbs of children and young people.

Children’s unique musculoskeletal systems, which are constantly developing and changing, means that we offer every child a highly individualised and dynamic assessment and treatment to ensure they reach their full potential and to prevent future structural damage.

Children’s physiotherapy treatment

Marple Physio offers specialist expertise in treating knee pain, sports injuries, hip and back pain, shoulder pain, flat feet, and hypermobility in children.

Wherever possible, we work with you to prevent the need for your child to undergo long term intervention, by helping to identify and resolve underlying causes for the current problems.

Additionally, we aim to empower parents with the necessary support and skills to help their child manage their condition and avoid further problems or injuries in the future.

If you would like to know more about how our specialist children’s physiotherapy could help your child, please get in touch and one of our team will be happy to discuss your child’s needs and offer further advice, without obligation.

Your child's consultation

During your initial appointment, you and your child will be able to discuss any concerns and any goals you would like to achieve with one of our specialist physiotherapists.

They will provide a full assessment and any diagnosis before discussing intervention options, which can usually start straightaway.

Initial consultations usually take 40 minutes and your child will be asked to wear their normal clothing and footwear.

In order to offer the most effective physiotherapy treatment, we will always work closely with your child’s GP and will refer them for further medical consultation, if required.

Here's what our clients say.

Karen S. ★★★★★ I've used Marple Physio for several issues relating to back, neck and jaw pain and the team are ace, I've had physio including acupuncture and Liz is fabulously attentive and caring. I've also recently had a sports massage with Hadiya. I went in with pain so distracting I was struggling to stand/walk and left feeling like a massive weight had been lifted and went to a concert and stood up all evening. Highly recommend them!Ellie R. ★★★★★ I booked in for a sports massage after struggling with neck and shoulder pain. Nadia was absolutely amazing throughout, I’m now feeling so much better and I’m able to turn my neck again. Thank you so much Nadia!M. G. ★★★★★ My son and I have both had physio treatment from Liz, who has been brilliant in helping us quickly improve our symptoms. She has gone out of her way to help us, and is a thoroughly kind and highly knowledgeable professional. Thank you so much!Alan W. ★★★★★ I have used Marple Physio several times for a variety of musculoskeletal problems. They have always been very accessible, efficient and effective in treating me. They are my first port of call for anything of this kind.Lara D. ★★★★★ I've had a few sports related injuries over the past few years and have seen both Nicky and Liz at Marple Physio. Both were super knowledgeable, understood the issue, and provided practical advice and exercises to help me quickly get back up and running (literally). I really recommend Marple Physio and have had nothing but good experiences. Thanks so much for all your help!Paul M. ★★★★★ My 13 year old son was suffering from a lower back issue that was stopping him football training and playing for over 4 weeks and it was really getting him down. A single appointment at Marple physio did the trick. The issue was quickly diagnosed, treated and he was left feeling much better with some exercises that have completed his recovery. I would highly recommend Marple Physio.G B ★★★★★ I went to Marple Physio during pregnancy as I was having problems with pelvic girdle pain and hypermobility. Before I started, I was struggling to walk up stairs without being in a lot of pain, had disturbed sleep from it and was dreading things getting worse in my final few months of pregnancy.Over my sessions Nicky gave me exercises that were manageable and safe, but still felt like they were making a big difference to my pain and also building up my strength. Pretty quickly I found my pain easing up and by my final session at 36 weeks, I felt in so much better shape than when I first started!I’d recommend Nicky to anyone needing support, but especially when pregnant. She was very approachable and really listened to what I needed and what I felt I could do as my pregnancy progressed.Amy W. ★★★★★ Brilliant service. Helped me so much with my low back pain. Saw a couple of other people at other clinics before working with Liz and she was hands down the best!Rose-Marie W. ★★★★★ I saw Nicky for pain in my c section scar which was affecting me on a daily basis. She was great at coming up with different treatments (exercises, physical manipulation and a cream) which have improved the pain I was experiencing.js_loader
