A large number of children and adolescents participate in organised sports every year. While there are clear benefits associated with physical activity, there is a trend for children to specialise sooner and train more. As a result, children are experiencing more overuse injuries, and some are burning out. Physiotherapists are well-placed to work with parents and coaches to help prevent and manage these conditions in children.
