At E Frame Physiotherapy we offer treatment plans for all types of adolescent musculoskeletal and sports injuries, including fractures, sprains, flat feet, scoliosis, and developmental delay problems. Due to the physiological differences between children and adults, children require a specialised approach which Emma is able to deliver.
Common musculoskeletal problems treated for include:
Trauma injuries including fractures, sprains or strains from sports, falls, etc.
Gait problems where children have developed an uneven walking pattern as they have grown.
Flat feet (which can also contribute to other problems such as knee pain, hip pain and balance difficulties).
Scoliosis (abnormal curvature of the spine).
Talipes or ‘club foot’. This can occur when the ligaments and tendons around the foot and ankle are tight when a baby is born making the foot stiff to move.
Erbs Palsy (brachial plexus paralysis). This is when the primary nerves which supply the movement and sensation to the arm have become partially or completely paralysed. This causes weakness and limits movement.
Plagiocephaly & Torticollis.These conditions cause neck tightness and flatness of the head.
Hypermobility where a child has an increased range of movements in their joints.
Juvenile arthritis which causes inflammation of joints, making them weak and stiff.
We treat all common knee problems Osgood’s Schlatter disease and Chondromalacia Patella.
Growing pains which are generally in adolescent’s legs and often attributed to rapid growth.
Neurodevelopmental Delay. This is when your child does not reach their physical milestones.
