There’s not much worse than your child being in pain. We see many active young people that face unique challenges when recovering from injury. Fortunately, most kids respond quickly to conservative treatment and can get back to the activities they enjoy sooner than most. Below are some of the most common questions we get asked by parents of injured kids:
Footwear for sports like hockey and soccer etc. can be especially tough on growing bodies. Because these aren’t typically sports that we as humans are designed to do, arch supports can be an effective way of making a bad system better. For running and walking, often ‘less is more’ when it comes to addition of arch supports and/or bracing, especially for long-term use.
We assess and treat our young clients in the same as all the rest of our clients. Determining the root cause of an issue and creating a plan to resolve it is key.
As always, we’d love to hear back from you if you have any questions and/or feedback. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter for upcoming events, sales, and blog articles!
