Preventative Musculoskeletal Health for Your Child

Children are full of energy and always ready to play unless they don’t feel good. Growth is associated with various physical problems which can prevent your child from enjoying his favourite sporting and recreational activities.

Symptoms like pain or stiffness not attributed to sudden injury (e.g. fall, accident) generally occur as a result of accumulated strain in the body. This strain can lead to “dysfunctions” including muscle tension, joint stiffness, lack of flexibility, nerve tension and muscle weakness. These dysfunctions can build up in a child’s body form an early age and may be related to:

  1. Sudden change in activity level with poor or reduced recovery periods between sports or activity sessions;
  2. Lack of warm up and cool down before and after sports;
  3. Poor posture in standing or sitting, including slouching on sofas and chairs;
  4. Inappropriate footwear.

Many of these dysfunctions can be detected well before they cause symptoms (e.g. pain). If detected soon, it is easier to fix them with relevant exercises, postural awareness strategies and appropriate treatment. This will prevent pain arising.
