Sports injury assessment and treatment in children and adolescents

Sports participation is important for our children in order to promote wellbeing and a healthy lifestyle. In recent years though, we have noted in Cyprus and worldwide an increase number of overuse sport injuries in children who are participating regularly in sports activities. Because children and adolescents are still growing they are more likely to sustain sports injuries compared to adults and these injuries are likely to be different compared to adults. At our clinic we offer assessment, gait analysis if necessary and treatment of children with overuse sport injuries. We also advise children on the type of sports they should be participating in, the frequency they participate in various sports, as well as preventative measures in order to avoid injuries. We offer specialized treatment to children with sport injuries according to the child’s age range in terms of the resting period that is required, physiotherapy and rehabilitation in order to allow the return to sports activities as quickly as possible.
