Youth sports are a big deal.
It’s estimated that over 1.7 million kids in Australia participate in at least one organized sport outside of school hours!
While sports give kids a fantastic opportunity to grow socially and physically, they also increase risks for injuries, pain from overuse, and muscular imbalances.
Finding proactive ways to reduce the risk of injury and balance the effects of training are essential for your child’s developing musculoskeletal system.
Your child’s skeletal system is actively developing until they are approximately 25 years old.
Their postural habits, history of injuries, and genetics play a role in their body’s final form (and function).
Sports have the potential to add a significant amount of stress and increase the chances of injuries for your developing child.
Even small injuries to their spine can create bigger challenges down the road as they get older.
- Addressing minor injuries and challenges while your child is young can help ensure proper musculoskeletal development.
- Youth sports can increase your child’s likelihood of developing overuse, growth plate injuries, and chronic pain.
