Paediatric physical therapists provide specialised care for younger patients, and often work with children with congenital health problems and birth defects.

► Orthopaedics:
Orthopaedic physical therapy is one of the most well known disciplines in the field of physical therapy. Orthopaedics is dedicated to musculoskeletal health. The arms, legs, hands, and feet are the parts of the body most prone to severe injury, such as sprains, strains, joint problems, breaks and amputation. Physical therapists can help treat these conditions and improve range of motion and flexibility of injured limbs. Physical therapy can also help patients who must learn to use a prosthetic device to replace a missing limb.

► Neurology:
People, who have sustained neurological damage, such that caused by a severe head injury from a fall or automobile accident, often benefit from ongoing physical therapy to regain lost function. Repetitive exercises and other types of therapy can help improve nerve and muscle function for many patients with brain damage or nervous system impairments.

Athletes are prone to specialised injuries and although some of these injuries can be treated using orthopaedic therapy, some require additional, targeted care. Sports physical therapist is specially trained in the treatment and rehabilitation of neuromusculoskeletal injuries.
