Did you know? The US Department of Health and Human Services performed a study based on National Health Interview Survey data from the years 2011-2014 starting with ages 5 and up, and results indicated that there was an estimated 8.6 million sports and recreation-related injuries a year!

65% of those injuries involved children and
young adults ages 5-24-years, with the highest injury report observed among the
age range of 5-14-year olds! (https://www.apta.org/PTinMotion/News/2017/1/4/SportsInjuries/)

This statistic is important because not
only can physical therapists treat a variety of injuries such as ankle sprains,
shoulder injuries, or elbow fractures, but here at Pediatric Achievements we
can also work on injury prevention!

Our pediatric physical therapists can work
on improving your child’s coordination needed for sports, strength, endurance,
control, flexibility, and balance. It is important to be equipped in these
areas to prevent an injury before it occurs. Other orthopedic conditions that
we treat include:

  • Ankle or foot malalignment
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle strains or tears
  • Muscle weakness
  • Pain
  • Scoliosis
  • Toe walking
