Singapore Physical therapy centres for children
There are plenty of options for therapy in Singapore. A lot of people opt for physios who come to their homes. We had a chat with a couple of parents - customers of EnaTechHub - and they shared their experience, in reality, a lot of awesome therapists are those who don’t have time to do house visits and can see you in the centres. It is also a great opportunity to get your kid out and about - and as we know, novelty stimulates neuroplasticity (brain rewiring).
Here’s a quick list of some of the best paediatric physiotherapy centres in Singapore, most of them ww have personally seen in action. All of them can help you with measuring up your kid and selecting the most appropriate equipment.
