Explore the Benefits of Youth Athletic Development with Cynergy PT

Youth athletic development Is your little one prepared for the demands of competitive athletics? A common concern for children participating in athletics is that they may be positioning themselves for injuries due to improper movement and overuse of specific muscle groups. At Cynergy PT, we want to help young people recover from their injuries and build their athletic abilities using logical, evidence-based approaches. Here’s how our youth athletic development programs can help your child thrive, avoid injury, and reach their full athletic potential.

Watching for Movement Red Flags

Many young athletes learn bad habits when it comes to how they move their bodies. In the interest of success, they may rotate incorrectly, use the wrong muscle group, run activities without proper stretching, and more. These movement red flags can be hard for coaches and athletes to spot until an injury occurs, but our trained team can find and correct them.

Addressing the Small Things to Reduce Risk

There are often risks associated with youth athletes that can improve with small changes. For example, an athlete may reduce the risk of an overuse injury by changing their exercise routine to work all the muscle groups in the arm or leg equally so the muscles develop adequately to compensate for the extra work. These small changes can make a big difference in the amount of risk a young athlete takes on.

Working with Common Youth Injuries and Ailments

Conditions like tendonitis, Osgood-Schlatter disease, and old-fashioned growing pains can make it difficult for young athletes to succeed in their sports. Our approach works to target these weak areas with corrective strategies that help athletes overcome them and excel despite them.

Building Fundamental Skills

Regardless of the sport, there are fundamental skills that young athletes need to succeed. Working with our ADPT team will give your young athlete these skills. They can improve performance and reduce the risk of injury by teaching the child what to do to perform their sport safely. Whether it’s a proper running stance for track-and-field or a proper throwing position for softball, these fundamental skills will follow the young athlete well into their athletic career.
