Adolescent growth issues 

It is not uncommon for children to develop certain injuries that are growth related, particularly with sudden growth spurts or periods of extended growing. Physiotherapy can help decrease your child’s pain in common conditions such as Osgood-Schlatter’s disease in the knee and Sever’s disease in the ankle. Physiotherapy has the ability to use an assessment and accurate diagnosis to drive a broad range of specific treatment modalities including stretches or strengthening exercises, massage, and prescription of adjunct accessories such as braces to decrease your child’s pain.
