Playing sports can bring great joy to children and teens. They can learn important lessons such as teamwork, sharing and being a good friend. Staying active is an important part of becoming a healthy adult too. Playing sports also comes with the risk of injuries and conditions that can make staying in the game and daily activities painful.
We treat sports-related orthopedic issues in children to help minimize any pain or issues that can stay with them into adulthood.
Types of Sports Conditions We Treat
We focus on treating the whole child. We treat children, teens and young adults with their issues related to playing sports. Some of the more common sports-related issues we see are:
- Little League elbow (medial epicondyle apophysitis)
- Osgood-Schalatter disease
- Sever’s disease
- Trauma, such as broken bones and overuse
- Knee injuries, such as ACL and meniscus tears, osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) and patella dislocations
We understand every child is different. Our doctors and staff work with you to create a treatment plan that’s right for your child’s condition. From RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) and occupational therapy all the way up to surgery, we help guide you and your family to the best outcome possible for your child.
