As we know, most teenagers lead such active and energetic lifestyles, as they develop, it is common for them to either strain, tear, or injure their muscles. Sometimes they can forget that their bodies are still growing, and it is easy to push it beyond its limits. However, with the right treatment and support from a qualified and professional physical therapist, we can try and keep these injuries to a minimum, to get them going again sooner.
So, when does your teenager require treatment?
We can break down this into two sections. Firstly, being preventative physical therapy for developing children and teenagers, as well as our everyday physiotherapy for injuries.
If pain is present, our physiotherapist can assist in injury prevention. Additionally, as teenagers are in their growing phase, we are skilled in helping growing issues as well as poor posture.
We’re confident we can keep growing teens active and help them throughout their physical development.
