Physio

 

Jennifer Moore-Gordon Physiotherapy has been in existence for over five years, working in and around the Parkmore and Bryanston area. Currently there are two therapists working at the practice, Jennifer Moore-Gordon and Lara Berman. Both of us are trained in Neurodevelopmental Therapy (NDT) and are focused on paediatric physiotherapy. We have a passion for children and strive to make therapy fun and enjoyable for the kids and their families. We work hand in hand with Occupational Therapists and Speech Therapists to ensure that the child makes noticeable and necessary improvements in their daily activities.
