In the world of pediatric medicine, it is often said, “Kids are not just little adults”. Nowhere is this more clear than in relation to musculoskeletal injuries in a developing child. A growing child is predisposed to unique injuries that will never present in the adult population. If untreated or misdiagnosed, these injuries may have devastating effects on the patient’s function and ability to pursue an active lifestyle as they grow older. Therefore, it is our duty as professionals to accurately identify these injuries early after their presentation and initiate targeted treatment to keep these young people pursuing an active lifestyle.

Throughout this online physiotherapy course, several cases will be presented that highlight common presentations of unique pediatric injuries. This will draw attention, not only to the specific cases but also to the general developmental concepts related to why pediatric athletes are susceptible to these injuries in the first place.
