I am personally seeing the activity levels of young children and adolescents sitting at either end of the spectrum of activity. That is, young kids and adolescents are either spending more and more time being sedentary and playing computer games, or they are the complete opposite and are actually participating in sport almost daily and sometimes several times a day. There are issues with both these scenario’s as both groups are suspceptible to injury. Please find below an article that I have written that outlines common injuries and conditions that need to be considered when seeing children and adolescents in the clinical environment.
