Physiotherapy for Children and Adolescents

Children and adolescents are particularly vulnerable to overuse injuries as their growing bodies can struggle to cope with the demands of playing multiple sports. Chartered Physiotherapists can prescribe age-appropriate exercises that help to strengthen the bodies of children and adolescents allowing them to continue to enjoy the benefits of sport and physical activity.

Dan is vastly experienced in designing appropriate training weeks for children and adolescents that match their stage of maturity and physical development. This is a very important consideration in the development of young athletes as their capacity for training is not the same as adults. This attention to detail allows young athletes to progress through their formative years with a reduced risk of injury and allows them to enjoy all the benefits that sport and physical activity have to offer.

The types of problems that children and adolescents commonly present with are:

  • Knee pain
  • Ankle/heel pain
  • Low back pain
  • Upper back pain
  • Groin pain
