Growth Spurt

Is your child super sporty and had a recent growth spurt? It would be good to keep an eye out for any comments they have regarding pain, stiffness or tightness as this could be a condition that needs to be managed appropriately.

Common injuries we have seen in the clinics recently include:

  • Osgood-Schlatter Disease (Anterior Knee Pain)
  • Sever’s Disease (Heel Pain)
  • Lower Back Pain

In these cases it is important that

  • Patients deload or moditify activities
  • Use recovery modalities pre and post exercise such as stretching or rolling (consult with physiotherapist to see if this is the right thing to do with their condition)
  • Come in to see us to address any dysfunctional movements.
