Large numbers of children and teenagers participate in organised sports every day. There are correspondingly high injury rates in these age groups, particularly overuse injuries. Children are not, however, “mini-adults”. While an adult might present with a tendinopathy or ankle sprain, a child is more likely to present with an avulsion fracture or growth plate injury. Thus, physiotherapists who work with young athletes must have an understanding of common paediatric injuries to optimise a child’s management and outcomes.
This course aims to introduce sporting injuries that are specific to children and teenagers.
This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
