Musculoskeletal Injuries in Sporting Children

Musculoskeletal injuries in children has been an area long neglected . There is a real possibility of missing diagnosis in this vulnerable age group and a possible mismanagement of cases.
Recently we have attended a course run by Sid Ahmed who is an expert in this field. It highlighted problems particularly in the lower and upper limb including growth related problems which sometimes can be dismissed as growing pains.
It was extremely useful course which will enhance our ability to correctly prevent issues developing in the young sporting child.
