Child-Friendly Care For Sports Injuries

We Provide Relief From Sports Injuries in Children

POBAR is dedicated to providing valuable insights and expert care for young athletes. Sports injuries encompass a range of orthopedic conditions resulting from physical activity, including strains, sprains, fractures, and overuse injuries. They are typically caused by repetitive stress, sudden impacts, or improper training techniques. Failing to address sports injuries promptly can result in prolonged pain, impaired performance, and long-term musculoskeletal problems. At POBAR, we understand the unique needs of young athletes and specialize in diagnosing and treating sports injuries to help them return to their activities safely and swiftly.

Diagnosis and Treatment

Sports injuries are characterized by acute pain, swelling, and limited movement following a sports-related incident. Our specialists at POBAR diagnose these injuries through thorough physical examination, imaging studies, and consideration of the mechanism of injury.

Treatment Options:

  • Rest and activity modification: Allowing injured tissues time to heal without further stress.
  • Rehabilitation exercises for functional recovery: Physical therapists design customized exercise programs to restore strength, flexibility, and coordination.
  • Surgical intervention for severe or persistent injuries: Surgeons repair damaged tissues or structures to restore function and prevent long-term complications..

Recovery Time And Treatment Aftercare

Recovery from sports injuries varies depending on the type and severity of the injury. Minor injuries may heal within a few weeks with rest and rehabilitation, while more severe injuries may require months of treatment.

Treatment Aftercare:

  • Adhere to a structured rehabilitation program: Rehabilitation exercises help restore function and prevent future injuries by improving strength, flexibility, and neuromuscular control.
  • Modify training and activity: Gradually return to sports and physical activities while avoiding overexertion and high-impact movements to prevent re-injury.
