What is paediatric pain?

Pain is a sensation that prevents us from damaging our bodies. Pain is very subjective and varies from person to person. One child may feel more pain than another despite experiencing the same painful stimulus. It can be an indicator of damage to the body, from minor problems to serious underlying problems.

What causes pain in children?

Pain is experienced when damage is being caused to the body. For example if a child touches a hot pan, pain is experienced causing the child to withdraw their hand. This prevents the child causing damage to the skin and deeper tissues of the hand by continuing to touch the hot pan. Pain can also prevent a child causing further damage to a current injury in the same way.

What are the symptoms of pain in children?

Pain is a symptom itself. It can be caused by many conditions including:
  • Muscle damage
  • Bone damage
  • Joint damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Organ damage
The level of pain will vary greatly depending on the condition and the individual.

What can physiotherapy do to help children with pain?

Physiotherapy treatment is aimed at reducing the child’s pain and diagnosing and treating the problem causing the pain. Pain reduction treatment may include:
  • Ice/heat therapy
  • Massage
  • Stretching
If the child’s pain is being caused by a condition that physiotherapy cannot treat, then our specialised physiotherapists are happy to refer the child to an appropriate specialist.


Pain varies greatly from child to child and can be caused by many different factors. Physiotherapy can help to improve paediatric pain.
