A child is unique, not just as an individual, but as they grow. Skeletal growth of a child changes at a phenomenal rate from infancy, childhood and into adolescence. Due to these rapid changes many children may experience growing pains and discomfort; some of these issues will resolve with time and others may require exercises or activity modification to ensure the child can return to play and sport as quickly as possible.
At Auckland Physiotherapy, our paediatric physiotherapist has been lucky to work with children and their families for over 10 years. They have expertise and experience working with children of all ages though their growth and development.
It is vital that we protect and support our children and equip them with the opportunities to succeed in their growth potential. Growth can be compromised by many factors from birth through to a sporting injury. Paediatric physios are equipped with the skills to assess, diagnose and manage childhood musculoskeletal development of all ages.
