Physiotherapy for Child & Adolescent Conditions & Sports Injuries

Here at the clinic, we treat a vast range of conditions, illnesses, sports injuries or post-operation rehabilitation in children and teens. These are some of the more common conditions that we treat. But don't worry if your condition is not listed below, please get in touch for a consultation.

Physiotherapy for knee pain in children

Physiotherapy for Knee Pain in Children

Knee pain in children is very common, especially knee pain at the front part, the knee cap or patella area. This could be a form of growing pain, but could also be several other problems. These include mal-tracking patella, hypermobility of the patella, instability of the patella, chondromalacia patella, ITB friction syndrome, patella tendonitis and Os Goolds schlatters. An examination and a scan normally can confirm diagnosis. Once this is done, physiotherapy to manage the condition normally rectifies these problems.
sports injury groin pain treatment

Physiotherapy for Groin Pain in Children

Groin pain in children is not so common, but several problems can exist here, depending on the sport or activity that brought on the pain. This includes a traction apophysitis (where the muscle tears from a bone) at four common sites around the front and side of the pelvis. Problems can also occur within the hip joint itself, perthes and slipped capital epiphyses being the more common and both requiring urgent attention. Stress fractures and bone fractures can also occur in the area, especially after trauma. Muscular injuries can also occur in this region, but should the pain persist for more than 6 weeks, it is best to come in and get it checked.
Teenage Back Pain Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy for Back Pain in Children

Back pain in children is becoming an increasingly common problem. Postural pain is by far the commonest condition, but we frequently see other issues: Scheurmanns syndrome, where the bones in the spine become a lot weaker and essentially can buckle; Scoliosis and other abnormal curvatures of the spine can occur, as well as biomechanical (or uneven legs) affecting the back. Muscle and ligament damage is also common, but if pain persists please seek an appointment. Other problems are spondylolysis (which is a break in one of the bones of the back) and Spondylolythesis (which is a slippage of one of the bones) are more common in the back. Some studies have shown that some doctors diagnose backs as simple muscle strains, but later scans reveal bone fractures, breaks and slippages. Back pain in children should never be underestimated, especially in physically active children.
Sports injury ankle pain

Sports Injuries and Pain in The Ankle

Whilst ankle pain in children is quite rare, the most common problem is Severs Syndrome. This is where the achilles tendon tears away from the back of the heel bone. Ankle ligament injuries can also occur, as can small breaks at the ankle. Fractures of the metatarsals, navicular bone, talus bone and fibula bone are all common and vulnerable regions in children. A simple scan from us can confirm the cause of the ankle pain, allowing us to propose a physiotherapy treatment plan, to aid quick recovery.
Physiotherapy hypermobile children

Treating Hypermobile Children

The term hypermobile is given to a part of the body, specifically a joint which is very flexible. So flexible in fact that they are often refered to as “double-jointed”. Most children think this must be cool, but sadly this predisposes them to injuries and discomfort. Common areas of the body in a hypermobile child include the lower back, knee and pelvis region. If your child is hypermobile we can prescribe a physiotherapy treatment plan to help develop and strengthen surrounding muscles, to minimise the risk of injury to the affected joint.
Physiotherapy Growing Pains Growth Spurts

Physiotherapy for Growing Pains

There has been relatively little clinicall studies into growing pains in children. However, the incidence of growing pains is between 5 and 42% of all children and most frequently occurs between the ages of 3-5 and 8–12 years, being more common in girls than boys.
Pains tend to be deep-seated, cramping sensations which can affect children day or night, sometimes even waking the child. The pains are normally intermittent, affecting legs more than arms. They can last for upto 3 months and can be intermittent during this period. They are normally related to growth spurts, and therefore maybe accompanied with increasing appetite, lethargy, modified sleep patterns, dreams at nighttime and changes in mood. Differential diagnosis will eliminate infection, malignancy, arthritis, and hypermobility syndrome.
