The Health Needs of Teenagers and Adolescents

teen-pageIt’s no surprise that teenagers generally regard themselves as bullet proof. Physical sport, rough play and pushing themselves are common themes in an adolescent’s life. As teenagers develop, they often test their body to the limit. Sometimes this is to participate or impress friends whereas other times there doesn’t seem to be any reason at all!

It is imperative to ensure the strains they put on their body during play are not affecting their normal development. This is also an age at which some common musculoskeletal conditions can develop and stay with your child into adulthood. Commonly treated conditions include: scoliosis and sporting injuries.
