Adelaide Crows Sports Medicine Clinic
Children, Pain, Muscles
Growing, active bodies can become sore despite no apparent injury occurring. As your body grows, the muscles and bones often don’t grow at the same rate. Muscles can become tight and start to pull on the parts of the bone they join onto, which can cause pain. This commonly happens at the front of the knee (Osgood Schlatters Syndrome) and at the back of the ankle (Severs condition).
The injuries kids sustain can also be quite different to adults even if they fall the same way. In kids, the growing area of the bone is vulnerable to injury and so fractures are much more common compared to adults.
Our staff have vast experience with children’s injuries and can help get your kids back doing what they what they love most, pain free, as soon as possible.
