Teens Sport Injuries

Teenager Physiotherapy Sports Injury Rehabilitation at home in London or in our practice in Belgravia near Victoria or Moorgate.

In London, most teenagers participate in sports activities at school. Although some only attend the PE class, most of them regularly engage in a team sport outside school (e.g. rugby, football or running). An injury can cause disappointment and hinder further progress in their preferred sport, or even issues later in life.

A good rehabilitation will prevent issues later in life and will allow the teenager to return to play as soon as possible.

Baby Physio & London home visit physiotherapy offer home visits in London for assessment and teen rehabilitation. Our physiotherapists are used to treating teenagers and adapt their treatment so the rehabilitation is fun and not a punishment. Treatment can include deep tissue massage, strengthening and mobilisation exercise, depending on the type and severity of the injury. Our home visits in London offer flexibility so you can book them to accommodate your child’s schedule, after school or on weekends, even at short notice. We also offer treatment at the Light Centre in Belgravia, near Victoria Station, or Moorgate, in the City of London.

Sports injuries in teenagers should not be overlooked, because the rate at which teenage sports injuries occur is comparable to this of professional athletes. The type of injuries they sustain, however, differs. This is mainly because teenage athletes are still growing and this is exactly why their injuries should be treated as soon as possible.

The main types of sports injuries that children and teenagers sustain at school are:

  • Acute injuries, such as
    • Muscle strains
    • Ligament sprains
    • Fractures
    • Concussions
    • Ankle sprain
    • Shoulder injury
    • Back injury
  • Overuse injuries such as
    • Stress fractures
    • Tendinitis
    • Back pain
    • Neck pain
  • Growth plate injuries

Acute injuries are caused by sudden trauma during exercise, which could be caused by an accident in the field or by poor technique. They occur more often in contact sports such as rugby and football. Overuse injuries develop gradually over time by repetitive activity in a sport, when this is practiced on a regular basis. They can affect muscles, ligaments, tendons or bones. Growth plates are developing cartilage at each end of a long bone in children and adolescents and they are prone to injury from contact sports or high impact sports, which may cause issues with bone growth or bone deformity.
