Don’t Ignore Pain In Children

The Signs To Spot Whether Your Child Needs Physio

  • When to know if a child is telling the truth
  • Don’t ignore potential fracture
  • Bruising on swelling : need assessment
  • Pain in the morning
  • Joint pain in multiple joints. ie my wrists and ankles hurt.
  • Early management for growing pains.
  • Conditioning muscles as children/ adolescents grow
  • Dynamic stretches in some cases.
  • Specific trauma – fallen off bike, fallen out of tree
  • Look out for green stick fractures: deformity is not always present with these.
  • Persistently reporting pain, particularly in the same location.
  • Random large bruises with no trauma: straight to GP ( not Physio)
