Our experience at Ohana Physiotherapy with our 11-month-old was fantastic! The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and attentive to our baby's needs. They created a warm and welcoming environment that made our little one feel comfortable throughout the sessions. The physiotherapists were gentle yet effective in their approach, providing tailored exercises and techniques to support our baby's development. We noticed significant improvements in our baby's mobility and strength thanks to their expertise. We highly recommend Ohana for parents looking for exceptional care for their little ones.

Mattia was the only one able to give me a diagnosis of my pain. He’s caring, professional and a very picky physiotherapist. Every session with him is very helpful for me. Amazing service, thank you Mattia 😊

Home visit for my 18 month old with Andrea was amazing! Everything she brought along was age appropriate, Andrea was very knowledgeable, and very gentle with my son when testing his mobility. Couldn’t highly recommend this service enough!

I used to think we had a very good physiotherapist, until we met Andrea and Soraya! They are the best. My little girl’s sessions are always fun but scientifically based! I always look forward to their updates as our little girl has her sessions while in kindy. She has massively improved and I am never going to look for any other physio. We are happily stuck with Ohana forever! They live up to their name because they treat everyone as a family. I look forward to your continuous success. All the best for Ohana team!

Mattia has been helping my son who has multiple disabilities with physiotherapy and has done an amazing job! My son is improving each week with both strength and confidence! Mattia is a very calm and positive therapist and has made my son enjoy outdoors and exercise in a fun way. Very helpful when it comes to ndis related questions, I highly recommend Mattia and I look forward to continuing with Ohana physiotherapy to see my son flourish even more.

Andrea responded to us on really short notice which we were very grateful for. She was amazing with my daughter and gave me and my wife the advice we needed so that we could relax. we will defiantly recommend her to our friends and family and we will see her if there are ever any more problems (we hope not though) .

Detecting Developmental Delays: How to Recognize Signs in Your Child

Do you suspect your child might have a gross motor developmental delay? It can be hard, especially for first-time parents, to distinguish between a simple lagging behind versus a true developmental delay in your child. A developmental delay is often diagnosed when a child does not reach their developmental milestones when expected. They can range from minor to something more significant.

To aid you in recognizing potential delays, here’s a simplified breakdown of expected gross motor skills for children at different ages:

By 2 years old, your child should be able to:

  • Walk independently on varying surfaces
  • Walk up and down stairs holding on
  • Climb up and down furniture
  • Transition between positions without environmental support
  • Start to learn to run and jump

By 5 years old, your child should be able to:

  • Use stairs independently
  • Run, jump and climb
  • Gallop and skip
  • Stand on one leg for five seconds
  • Hop five times on one leg

By 10 years old, your child should be able to:

  • Ride a bike ideally without trainers
  • Have appropriate ball skills for team sport
  • Skip and hop consecutively
  • Stand on one leg for ten seconds
  • Be able to swim

Keep in mind that children grow and develop at different speeds, and you as the parent know your child better than anyone else.

At Ohana Physiotherapy, we specialise in providing paediatric physiotherapy services across the Gold Coast and Tweed Coast, , particularly catering to NDIS needs. Our goal is to support your child’s optimal development and help them reach their full potential.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child’s development, don’t hesitate to contact our team. We are here to assist you in your child’s journey towards improved health and enhanced mobility.
