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.


This course aims to introduce overuse injuries and burnout in children and discuss prevention and management strategies.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video
  2. Reading activity
  3. Quiz
