What are the common reasons for developmental problems?

There are several common reasons why a person may have developmental problems. Developmental problems are mainly the result of neurological problems. Physiotherapists commonly treat people that have developmental problems as a result of illness.


Developmental problems are commonly dealt with by physiotherapists either primarily or secondary to other illnesses people maybe suffering. At
  • We have experienced physiotherapists who are used to working with adults with developmental problems.
  • We can provide longer assessment and treatment sessions to get the most out of each physio programme.
  • We have a good understanding of every condition and how to manage it so each individual can get the best out of their sessions.
  • We can teach not only the individual receiving treatment but their guardian/carer or family member their treatment plans so it will help them outside of the clinic.


A person with developmental problems may have delay with physical growth, motor development, cognitive/intellectual development, social/emotional development and language. They may take longer to learn things in comparison to a ‘normal’ individual. Physiotherapy can help those people with developmental problems that are secondary to their illness. At, our physiotherapists will find the best possible way for each person to get the most out of your treatment session whilst taking into consideration any developmental problems you may have.
