When most people think about physiotherapy, they think about adults and older individuals seeking treatment, and it’s no wonder, with many of the symptoms being that which affect the older population, such as arthritis, chronic pain, or long term injuries sustained from previous motor vehicle injuries. Many conditions that can be helped with physio treatment also affect children. As such, children can also benefit greatly from physiotherapy.
Here are a few reasons why your child may benefit from visiting a Physiotherapist in South Perth:
Injuries, aches or pains
We all know that children have a habit of getting a bit over excited and can easily end up hurting themselves through over-boisterous play. With developing bones and growth spurts, children and the younger population can be at greater risk of hurting themselves and may require treatment from an experienced Physiotherapist.
Sports-Based Activities & Associated Injuries
Fractures, Sprains or Strains
Should your child be unfortunate enough to suffer a sports-based injury such as a fracture, sprain or strain, it’s important to make sure they receive the correct treatment in order to avoid these injuries becoming a long-term issue. Visiting your local Physio in South Perth & Como can speed up the process of recovery as well as ensuring that a complete recovery is achieved, preventing future unnecessary injuries.
Concussions & Neck Injuries
Similarly, head injuries can occur when playing contact sports such as football or even just with vigorous play. This can occasionally result in a concussion or whiplash type injury. This should not be ignored and should undergo assessment as soon as possible after the event to determine the severity of the injury. Your local South Perth Physio will also be able to assess if there has been any associated musculoskeletal damage and treat as required. This is important to prevent future chronic pain as a result of a whiplash associated disorder or injury.
