There does not appear to be any reason why your son needs to see a physiotherapist. Physiotherapists do not usually treat children's throat infections. In any case your son is better now.

What did she tell you that horrified you? I''ve been to the physio many times and my child have been as well, even as a baby (not for throat infection though, but broncho pneumonia), and it worked really well, and my child loved it.
