Activate Physiotherapy offers physiotherapy treatment for children aged 0 – 18 years old by a fully qualified and registered Chartered Paediatric Physiotherapist.  We have direct links with consultants and services at the Great North Children’s Hospital including Orthopaedic Surgeons.

We have a passion for inclusion and inclusive activity and believe that therapy should be an integral part of a child’s daily routine and not a chore! We strongly believe that the child, and their family, should be central to goal setting and treatment planning in order to achieve optimal results.

We at Activate believe that parents and family are an integral part of the rehabilitation process, and we encourage parents and carers to take an active role in their child’s rehabilitation at each stage to enable them to support and implement programmes, and enable rehabilitation to become an activity that can be reinforced on a daily basis. We will strive to work in partnership with you, and other professionals to facilitate the Physiotherapy input and support.
