Every injury is different and needs to be assessed in person.
During your initial visit, we will perform an assessment and provide a thorough evaluation of the athlete. We will make recommendations of effective treatment options, along with prescribing exercise therapy to help facilitate recovery.
Most importantly, we will educate you and the young athlete on the expected recovery time and how to get back on the field as soon as possible.
Preventing injuries is extremely hard, and therefore, we do not promise that we can prevent injuries from occurring. However, as physiotherapists, we can mitigate the risk of injury in many different ways. For instance, an assessment can help us discover mobility and stability deficits.
Lacking mobility or stability can lead to injury, especially as playing sports demands a lot from our bodies. By identifying underlying asymmetries in the body based on the demands of the sport, we can use strategic interventions to reduce the risk of developing an injury.
Parents are often concerned about posture, scoliosis, and conditions related to growing pains, such as Osgood-Schlatter disease (knee pain) and Sever’s disease (Achilles pain).
We also see kids for fractures and after surgery to help facilitate return to activity.
