When should a child see a physical therapist?
Anytime a child has an ache or pain, during sports or in general is a good time to see a physical therapist. A physical therapist will perform an evaluation on the child to determine the cause of the pain. At times the pain could be due to growing pains, especially in the teenage population. Or it could be due to a more severe injury from running, jumping, or playing sports. If you see a physical therapist early on, before the pain gets too bad, the chances of a quick recovery are much higher. Athletes are less likely to miss out on practices and games if early intervention is performed. Injury prevention is just as important as recovery from injury and physical therapists are trained to help athletes get back on the field.
Any athlete with an ache or pain should be looked at by a physical therapist. Dr Horgan and the staff and NC Center for PT have the experience working with athletes of many sports and of all different ages. Some of the sports that our athletes play include soccer, volleyball, gymnastics, swimming, baseball, basketball, tennis, dance, golf, judo, bowling, rugby, and boxing.
