You see kids in the clinic and you get most of them better. Do you want to revisit the anatomy and biomechanics that underpin these injuries? Are there novel approaches to treatment? Does early sport specialization cause problems? How can we balance the need for coaches to have time to develop elite juniors’ skills with the risk of overuse injuries. Some kids’ injuries, such as cam deformities at the hip may arise during the growing years and cause problems later in life.
