Youth Sports Physical Therapy in Reno for Young Athletes
Youth athletes are more than just active little adults; they face unique challenges related to their rapidly changing bodies and must be treated accordingly. Today’s busy sports schedules add extra layers of physical and mental stressors to adolescents and teenagers in addition to the changes in their strength, height and body mechanics. The therapists at Battle Born Health can identify movement dysfunctions that may expose young athletes to future injury and address them before they become a problem.
We Can Help With the Following
Battle Born Health offers exceptional therapy services for young athletes. We can treat shoulder sprains, shoulder strains, shoulder tears, knee pain, heel pain, and more. Our goal is to help youth athletes heal so they can resume their day-to-day activity and help them remain active in their sports program. We can also offer help with nutrition consultation, and how to prevent injuries to the ACL. Most ACL injuries can be prevented if the muscles which surround the knees are strong and flexible. Our sports therapists can help youth athletes increase muscle power, balance, and also improve their core strength and stability.

Healing Your Heel Pain
Heel pain is usually caused by stress on the growth plate, causing inflammation. It can occur in one or both feet and is known as Sever’s disease, which is the most common cause of heel pain in children. The good news is that Sever’s disease is treatable and usually does not cause any long-lasting damage. Our therapists can help with any heel pain caused by Sever’s disease.
