Adolescent Injury Rehabilitation


At Pro Performance Physiotherapy in Dulwich Hill, we’re here to help parents and their teenage kids. We focus on ensuring a smooth and effective recovery for teenagers, providing tailored assistance during this important phase of their lives.

Common Types of Adolescent Injuries:

  1. Growth Plate Injuries: These injuries occur at the ends of bones and are common during growth spurts. They require careful assessment and management to prevent long-term complications.
  2. Overuse Injuries: Due to the demands of sports and physical activities, adolescents are susceptible to overuse injuries like stress fractures, tendonitis, and apophysitis (inflammation at the attachment of tendons to growing bones).
  3. ACL Tears and Knee Injuries: With increased participation in sports, adolescents may experience ligament injuries, particularly to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which can be effectively managed through physiotherapy.
  4. Osgood-Schlatter Disease: This is a common condition characterised by pain and swelling just below the knee joint, often seen in active adolescents.
  5. Scoliosis and Postural Issues: Adolescence is a critical time for addressing spinal alignment and posture to ensure healthy growth and development.
