More about pediatric physiotherapy 💡
Physiotherapy is available for newborns from one week of age, toddlers, preschoolers and children up until 18 years old.
For children diagnosed with a specific disorder, regular physiotherapy is very important. It is a way to compensate for problems in the long term and thus avoid complications in the future.
Children who are regularly involved in a sport or activity may also benefit from movement screening, education, and injury prevention.
We help kids with

- scoliosis and other postural deformities
- care after an injury, trauma, or surgery

Developmental assessment of babies
You may suspect a delay or problem in your child’s behavior when you compare them to others in the same age group.
The goal of this assessment is to evaluate whether or not a treatment plan is needed and to provide some practical advice, based on the age of the baby and their current developmental stage. Treatment includes education of the caregivers on handling and positioning techniques, and exercise protocols when necessary.
What therapeutic methods do we use?
Our therapists use various treatment methods including Vojta Reflex Locomotion therapy, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization method (Prof. Kolar), Bobath concept and others.
We support women from 12 weeks of pregnancy to full term. We will help you with hip, coccyx or pubic pain.
We will recommend suitable sports activities and exercises to compensate for the changes that occur naturally during pregnancy and which can be the source of musculoskeletal pain.

Thanks to respiratory physiotherapy you can thoroughly work on breathing difficulties, diminish your asthma symptoms or get significant relief after surgeries in the abdominal or chest area.
It is also widely used in sports training as it helps enhance performance and recovery.

Respiratory therapy is part of rehabilitation focusing on breathing difficulties. It has diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive significance.
It is used in children and adult patients with diseases of the respiratory system in both acute and chronic forms (for example COPD, bronchial asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, conditions after pneumonia, etc.).

At MINT Terapie we use ultrasound for the most accurate assessment and objective monitoring of progress in physiotherapy.
We use it especially for examining diastasis recti and evaluating the condition of the pelvic floor muscles.
Read more about ultrasound examination 💡
In MINT Terapie we use a wireless ultrasound probe to examine diastasis recti and pelvic floor muscles. Sonographic imaging allows us to objectively assess the condition of the soft tissues, measure the size of the abdominal muscle separation, and then accurately monitor the progress and results of the therapy.
Advantages of ultrasound examination
When examining the pelvic floor muscles, the live image offers to patients also excellent feedback and guidance in the activation and relaxation of pelvic muscles, awareness of which can otherwise be problematic.
Should I be afraid of the examination?
The examination is painless and safe, there is no need to prepare for it in any special way and it can be repeated as needed.
What probe do we use for the examination?
In MINT Terapie we use a 2in1 probe – linear 7.5 MHz – 10 MHz 192 elements and convex – 3.5 MHz – 5 MHz, 192 elements.
B, B/M, Color Doppler, PW or Power doppler modes can be used.
Workshops and seminars
We take care of your health not only in our clinic, but also directly in firms and institutions at professional seminars and workshops.
