Child and Adolescent Injuries

About

Younger athletes suffer many of the same mechanisms of injury as adults. However, significant differences occur in the types of injuries sustained by children and adolescents because of the differences in the structure of growing bone with adult bone.

Children and preteen’s, still growing bones, make them more vulnerable to damage from overuse or repeated movements.

If your child is complaining of a specific pain for more than 5-7 days, it is worth getting them assessed by one of our physiotherapists
