Adolescent & Teenage Physiotherapy
Jeannette, our specialist physiotherapist, has undertaken specific training for the treatment of young adults. She also has had great success with the treatment of teenagers.
What is Adolescent & Teenage Physiotherapy?
We are able to offer teenagers and adolescents a wide range of treatments for many muscular and tendon related conditions.
Common conditions that we can treat your child for, include:
- Osgood Schlatter Disease – this is a condition that causes pain and swelling below the knee joint. It is very common in children in their early teens.
- Sever’s Disease – this is who growing children suffer from heel pain. This is often caused by playing sport and regular exercise.
- Jumper’s Knee – is very similar to Osgood Schlatter Disease, inthat it is shown as inflammation of the patellar tendon which is where you knee cap joins to your shin bone.
- Shin Splints – these are commonly caused by regular exercise and sport. It is presented as pain and swelling around the lower part of your leg.
- Back Pain – it is estimated that around 50% of adolescents in the UK complain of back pain, generally of the mid and lower spine. There are many causes for this, including exercise, sport and even carrying a heavy bag to and from school or college.
