Paediatrics

When looking for a Physiotherapist for your child, you want the best – someone who is specially trained, highly qualified, experienced and of course someone who you feel comfortable with and trust. Someone who knows and understands your child is unique.

Lisa Brassington

Our paediatric Physiotherapist Lisa Brassington, specialises in neurology (cerebral palsy, traumatic spinal cord injury, head or brain injury) and also developmental disorders. Lisa joined Response Physiotherapy in 2015 with over 19 years of physio experience, she is a true expert in her field, bringing play and fun into her treatments with children. You will get help, support and reassurance in the understanding of what is normal in your child’s movement, development and posture. You will also be supported in and shown how to maximise this for your child.

Lisa graduated from University with an honours degree in Physiotherapy in 1996. After working in hospital departments, treating both adults and children, she specialised in Paediatrics in 1998 and continued to work across a wide range of areas including children’s and neonatal intensive care units.

“We left our initial appointment on such a high. Eden got so much out of it and so did we, we couldn’t wait to try the exercises at home. We’re still really happy with how everything is going and the changes we see because of the Physiotherapy treatment and advice. It’s clear to see how much Eden enjoys the sessions with Lisa. Eden listens and responds to Lisa in a way I haven’t seen her do before. I think Physio was the best step we could have taken for Eden and we are so pleased with how it’s going”. Charlotte and Rob, parents of Eden, age 18 months.
