It’s never easy to see your child in pain. Whether they’ve had an accident, an injury on the field, or are having trouble with fine motor skills, you want to do everything you can to protect them and keep them safe. When we treat kids and teens, we try to make the experience fun so it’s enjoyable and kids can get back to feeling good again. In the process, we always educate families on how to keep their kids safe, while still allowing them to have fun and do the things that kids do.
We talked about this very topic with the delightful Terri DeBoer when we stopped by WOOD TV’s eightWest this week.
Some of the most common injuries that bring young children to us include sprains and strains, broken bones, and what’s commonly called growing pains or muscle imbalances. We can also help with fine motor challenges in school like cutting paper and handwriting. Teens tend to come in for things like concussions, sprains and strains from playing sports, back and shoulder pain due to poor posture, and strains due to texting and gaming.
We also offer free helmet and backpack fitting assessments at all six of our locations. All you have to do is stop by with your child and their helmet or backpack.
