Although they may be less common, injuries in the paediatric population (i.e., kids under the age of 18) do occur. While most are minor scrapes and bruises, many paediatric injuries require professional attention. Depending on the age of the patient, and the nature of the condition, paediatric ailments often come with a unique set of challenges.
Examples of paediatric conditions we manage:
- Ligament sprains and muscle strains
- Sport and activity-related injuries
- Movement coordination disorders
What to expect from your visit:
The type of encounter will very, depending on the condition and the age of the child. Adolescent conditions are often similar to those of an adult, and the treatment and advice is largely directed to the child themselves. Infant and toddler treatment is often play-based and interactive, with majority of the emphasis placed on parental education about the condition, and how to manage it at home.
We love working with kids!
While injuries will happen, they are often opportunities to determine and highlight prevention strategies that can last a lifetime. Whether its education about posture OR advice on how to run properly, the insight gained often goes well beyond the current injury.
