Have you or you children got Growing Pains?
These types of pains are usually exacerbated by exercise and activity and relieved with rest, and are more common in those who participate in sports with repetitive jumping, running and throwing, such as basketball, gymnastics, baseball and volleyball.
Common Growing Pain Sites
Heel – Sever’s Disease
Knee – Osgood Schlatters Disease, Sinding Larsen Johansson Syndrome (Jumper’s Knee)
Elbow – Little League or Pitcher’s Elbow
Your physiotherapy treatment journey will include:
Load management and activity modification strategies to keep active and prevent deconditioning without irritating tissues
Individualised progressive strengthening and stretching program to build load capacity and tissue resilience
Sport specific and motor control training to assist in return to full training and competing while reducing the risk of recurring symptoms.
After suffering serious damage to my right knee due to a motorbike accident in 2008, I've struggled with many movements and forms of exercise. I've also been very particular with who I let work on my knee. I've been seeing Fiona for a few months now and I must say that my knee feels better now than it has in years!! Fiona has helped me regain some (still got a way to go yet) confidence in my own ability not to mention increased functional strength and flexibility. Highly recommend Fiona and the team at Target Physio.
