Injuries in young athletes and dancers

Young athletes and dancers often suffer from injury in the knees and foot due to excessive loading of the lower limb (e.g. long distance running, badminton, gymnastics, weightlifting). These injuries are often caused by a mismatch between the bone and muscle growth. These athletes would require a more gentle approach with the introduction of physical activity and skills. Some athletes who resort to excessive jumping and weightlifting may also suffer from low back pain due to degenerative changes in the vertebra of the spine.

Most of these injuries may be resolved by taking the athlete off such exercises for several weeks followed by careful gradual reintroduction of safe exercises. Consult your doctor if you need help.
