Adolescent and teen athletes are more likely to suffer injuries on the field than adult athletes because their bodies are still growing and developing. In this susceptible state, the impact from rigorous activity and contact sports can result in painful injuries that can severely affect performance. By visiting Dr. Drew Stein for post-injury care, your young athlete can make a complete recovery and learn to train with a lower risk for future injuries. Here is a look at the specific care your child or teen may receive for sports injuries:
Pre- and post-season training – Training programs are helpful for young athletes as they promote the proper methods to improve performance. With programs that help your athlete prepare for an upcoming season and recover from a season that is winding down, Dr. Stein can help your young athlete stay in the best shape possible to avoid injuries and perform his or her best.
Comprehensive injury care – After diagnosing your young athlete’s injury with advanced imaging technologies, Dr. Stein will present all the available routes for care so that a complete recovery can be made. As the injury improves with the right care, recommendations will be made for physical therapy and returning to play. This is an important part of the recovery process, as the doctor will be able to recognize when the risk of returning to the field is minimal.
- Sports specific care – Repetitive injuries are among the most common injuries that children experience in sports, so it is important for care to be geared toward the movements specific to the sports that your son or daughter plays. Dr. Stein makes this type of care available so your child better understands how to perform well in his or her preferred sport.
