Youth athletes have special needs in their training and rehabilitation of injuries.
Regardless of their fitness and skill level, they cannot be conditioned or trained like an adult or a professional athlete. They have growth plates, bone-tendon and muscle structures, and stamina differences that, if not protected, will relate to injury. Sometimes these injuries can have lifetime consequences.
At MOTI we always approach the youth athlete with the same individualized treatment that we apply to all of our athletes, and with the utmost consideration for the youth’s unique physical development. Our Physical Therapists are trained in the care of the musculoskeletal, nervous and balance systems of the developing body. We work with the youth athlete to rehabilitate injuries and return to sport even stronger than before. And we work to educate the youth athlete, helping them to develop healthy habits for a sustainable lifetime of athletic endeavor and success.
