Pediatric Pain Relief
Is Your Child Living with Pediatric Pain? Physical Therapy Can Help
Pediatric pain is something that can occur for several different reasons, but most commonly is the result of a play or sport injury.
As proud as you are of your child’s bravery on the playground or playing field, a part of you still frets over the potential for injury. It’s only natural to be concerned about sprains, strains, accident injuries, and overuse injuries in active kids. The good news is that neither you nor your child is completely helpless against pediatric pain.
A strong, agile body is a must for preventing sports or play injuries that lead to pediatric pain. If your child has an obvious muscle weakness or other functional limitation, physical therapy can help minimize that obstacle to improve athletic safety and performance. Our Palmyra, MO or Florence, SC physical therapists can evaluate your child’s balance, coordination, stance, gait, muscle strength, and range of motion for any issues that might need improvement. Specific physical therapy exercises can then be prescribed to correct those issues before your child takes the field.
Physical therapy for pediatric pain
At Priority Physical Therapy, we can help make sure your child is safe while performing athletic activities or running around the playground by:
- Demonstrating how to play safely.
- Providing proper warm-up and cool-down techniques.
- Educating you and your child on common injuries for his or her sport.
- Expressing the importance of proper nutrition.
- Designing a treatment plan for injury prevention.
Additionally, if you have a child that has a specific condition that is leading to pediatric pain, our Palmyra, MO or Florence, SC physical therapists can help them find relief for that, as well.
In fact, according to Medical News Today,
“Pediatric physical therapy aims to diagnose, treat, and manage conditions that affect infants, children, and adolescents, including developmental delays, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, torticollis and other conditions that impact the musculoskeletal system.”
At Priority Physical Therapy, our treatment methods are conservative and non-invasive, aimed at relieving pain, promoting healing, and improving function as needed. Our highly trained pediatric physical therapists incorporate specialized methods into their treatment plans to help your child receive the best possible treatment for his or her condition.
