All parents want their children to be healthy and happy. The AktivKids is a Paediatric Physiotherapy Program & has been designed to help your children be physically and mentally alert, play more sports, avoid injuries, correct their posture, manage their weight and grow healthy. A fun approach to health and fitness in children lays a strong foundation for their future.
Who can benefit from Paediatric Physiotherapy?
Every child can benefit from the program as we aim to enhance overall strength, stamina, and health. Many children are too sedentary and this can lead to general weakness, bad posture or lack of coordination. Therefore, to grow healthily, this needs to be balanced by proper activities, which form the basis of the AktivKids Program.
If a child has a condition that needs particular attention, due to a birth defect or any other condition, then AktivKids can focus on this to help with their rehabilitation.
Health Symptoms and Conditions that we treat at AktivHealth
At AktivHealth, we provide a holistic approach towards a child’s injury, deformity or disability. We focus on restoring the functionality and strength of the injured or damaged part of the body, but we also treat other areas which may have been affected. We follow an evidence-based practice that ensures a quick and smooth recovery for the patient.

Is your child overweight or obese?
According to the Obesity Foundation of India, more than 15% of urban children are overweight. The alarming spread of childhood obesity is due to our modern lifestyles, with low levels of physical activity and the popularity of junk foods. Obese kids are more prone to diabetes and other lifestyle diseases. Through metabolic balance®, a German-developed weight management program exclusive to AktivHealth in India, we help children to return to good health with a personalized nutrition program and supervised medical training therapy. metabolic balance® is only suitable for children over 8 years of age.
