Sports Injuries

Is your child an athlete? It is estimated that there are approximately 60 million youths, aged 6-18, who participate in organized sports. Of those 60 million, approximately 45.9%-54% will sustain some form of sports injury. Therapy Care can help with developmental progress – so your child can get back to doing the sport he or she loves!

Acute Injuries And Overuse Injuries

Sports injuries can typically be placed into two categories: acute or overuse. Acute injuries are caused by a single specific incident, such as a sprain, strain, fracture, or tear. Overuse injuries are caused by excessive repetitive movements over time. Some examples of overuse injuries include frozen shoulder, flexor tendinitis, shin splints, tennis elbow, and golfer’s/Little Leaguer’s elbow.

Benefits Of Pediatric Physical Therapy In Batavia

Pediatric physical therapy is an essential part of helping children develop from sports injuries and return to the activities they love. At Therapy Care, we understand that children have unique needs when it comes to injuries, and our experienced physical therapists are trained to provide specialized treatment plans tailored to meet those needs.

One of the key benefits of pediatric physical therapy is its conservative and non-invasive approach. We focus on developmental progress through a variety of techniques, such as manual therapy, ice, and heat therapies, or ultrasound. Our therapists also provide light stretching and exercise plans to improve the range of motion and overall function in the affected area. By using these techniques, we can help children bounce back from their injuries without resorting to invasive procedures or medications.

Another important aspect of pediatric physical therapy is that it is specifically designed for children. Unlike adult treatments, pediatric treatments take into account the child’s unique biomechanics, physical activity level, and continuing physical and mental development. By tailoring our treatment plans to meet these specific needs, we can ensure that each child receives the best possible care and achieves the best possible outcomes.

The ultimate goal of pediatric physical therapy is healing and prevention. In addition to treating the injury, our physical therapists focus on strengthening the affected area to prevent additional injuries from occurring. We also provide warm-up and cool-down techniques for your child’s sport to lower their risk of sustaining another injury. By working closely with parents and caregivers, we can ensure that your child receives the ongoing support and guidance they need to develop fully and stay healthy and active for years to come.

I had an amazing experience at Therapy Care. I came with neck and shoulder pain and saw Dr. Aparna for 6 weeks. I instantly felt very comfortable and welcome. I truly felt that she cared about my progress. She is super knowledgeable and I felt better even after our first physical therapy session together. I am so thankful for her help because I feel so much better now. I would highly recommend her. Erin was also very great to work with, very good communication and follow through. Very positive experience.
