At Memorial Clinic, our pediatric sports medicine team is passionate about helping kids and teens of all abilities heal after an injury so they can get back outside and continue exploring. Given their constant growth and development, children and adolescents have unique medical considerations and are not merely small adults. Their bodies are undergoing constant change, and the conditions and injury patterns that affect their muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, and joints are often quite different from the conditions that affect older patients. Our program offers complete medical care to the active patient, from attention to musculoskeletal injures and holistic recovery, to consultations regarding nutrition and health maintenance. We believe in working closely with the family to create a comprehensive rehabilitation plan for a safe return to sport and play.

Pediatric sport medicine specialists diagnose, treat, and manage the musculoskeletal and medical problems of children and teens, including the following:

  • Fracture care
  • Acute injury evaluation and treatment
  • Chronic/overuse injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Apophysitis
  • Joint instability
  • Relative energy deficiency in sport (RED-S) and nutrition consultation services
  • Eating disorders
  • Comprehensive rehabilitation plan for safe and optimized return to sport
  • Heat illness
  • Evaluation for lower limb alignment (ie ‘in toeing’ or ‘knocked knees’)
  • Unique conditions of the athlete with special needs
