Children Musculoskeletal Sports Injuries and Physiotherapy
Musculoskeletal Sports Injuries and Physiotherapy
often experience the same kinds of musculoskeletal injuries and sports injuries
as adults do; especially as their skeletons are still growing and their bones
are more weak than adults.
When it comes to active children, sports injuries may be quite hard to avoid.
This can range from minor cuts and bruises to more serious pains and strains…or
even more serious still, bone fractures and soft tissue ruptures.
in children can happen for many reasons, including not wearing adequate
protective equipment, not warming up their bodies enough or correctly, not
compliance to safety and even dehydration or rough play.

a sprain refers to a ligamental injury that is either overstretched or torn. Ligaments
are really tough, fibrous connective tissue that connects two or more bones in
a joint, and helps to prevent excessive movement of the joint.

injury treated by our musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapist. These kinds
of sprains usually occur during a sports or a casual activity, but one may get
it even by walking over uneven terrain.

and tendons. Muscles are tissues composed of specialized bundles that is able
to contract and lengthen to produce force for movement. Tendons instead are
tough cords that connects muscles to bones

ends of long bones in children and adolescents who are still growing.
When growth is complete, usually in adolescence, this growth plate becomes fully
Long bones of the body are such as the long bones of the forearm, fingers, the
