Children + adolescent injuries

Children & adolescents, due to their open physes (growth plates) and growing bodies, are subject to quite different injuries compared to adults.

Our practice is located close to many of Sydney’s major public and private schools, and over the past 20 years a large part of our work has been devoted to treating injuries in school aged children. We understand the injuries which occur, and are up-to-date with the best treatment practices for these conditions. We also recognise that after puberty, boys and girls have different characteristics and different injury patterns. Many injuries which occur during these years are preventable, and we specialise in educating & training our young patients with this goal in mind.

Common injuries which we treat include:

  • Patellofemoral (kneecap) pain & instability

  • Ankle sprains

  • ‘Growing pains’

  • Osgood Schlatter’s

  • Back pain

  • Knee ligament injuries

  • Shoulder pain due to sport
