A leading provider of paediatric physiotherapy in Stockport.

Our specialist children’s physiotherapy and podiatry is currently unavailable.

Please read our COVID-19 guidance to find out about services currently available in clinic or via remote consultation.

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 podiatry

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.

I had physio on my shoulder with Liz and she is very friendly and an expert at what she does. She was quick to diagnose the issue and give me the appropriate exercises that helped fix the problem. Would definitely recommend.

I received fantastic service from Marple Physiotherapy and my physiotherapist Nicky. The causes of my hip injury were investigated and clearly explained, and I was given several recovery exercises to follow. All in all a very rigorous, personable, and tailored experience. Would highly recommend.

I went to Marple Physiotherapy after I slipped on the ice with my dog and hurt my neck/shoulder. After many sleepless nights in agony I went to see Liz, who over a few visits worked wonders and had me pain free and most importantly got me my full movement back in my right arm. Everything from what she did in the practice to the exercises see gave me to do at home is geared up to promote a speedy recovery and her knowledge is incredible.Can’t recommend them enough, would definitely suggest a visit if you have any aches or pains.

Before lockdown I started treatment with Julie on my C-section scar. I have suffered with pain, aggressively red looking scar which was hypertrophic for a year. After a discussion and 3 sessions with Julie I saw an improvement. We did specific massage, which involved super gentle movement technique, along with an ultrasound treatment. Julie explained exactly how to treat my scar at home so I could continue with the movement technique myself.The scar is now less aggressive looking and in parts starting to turn skin colour and has more movement all along the scar. Although not 100% pain free just yet, it is a massive improvement.If you have any scar pain then I highly recommend having a chat with Julie and she can talk you through what treatment is best suited to you.
