The importance of moving
Moving is one of the most important things for your growing child. It stimulates the development of motor skills and reduces the chance of being overweight. By exercising, your child learns social skills and becomes more confident. Your sporting child can also suffer from injuries, making it difficult to participate in gym (pain free). Make an appointment for this, because with the right guidance, most of the complaints at childhood are often quickly resolved. Because our therapists specialize in complaints that arise in children and adolescents, it is preferable to always go to a pediatric physiotherapist in the event of orthopedic complaints.
What effects do orthopedic complaints have on your child or adolescent?
Exercise and sport related problems in children are more common as a child gets older. This can affect your child physically and/or (psycho)socially. A pediatric physiotherapist can assess the problem, possibly treat and think along about solutions or adjustments. This way your child can participate again without worries and with fun during his/her sport or physical activities.
What are common problems?
- Sport injuries such as sprained ankle

What does the therapy look like
The treatment for exercise and sport-related problems in children is very playful and is usually focused on exercises, so this is often experienced as something fun! It will also have a positive effect on self-confidence. With this we try to ensure that the child functions better within his/her physical and social environment.
