The extra free time over the summer holidays creates a perfect window of time to get you child started in our Young Rehabilitation sessions in our Strong Room at goPhysio.
These sessions are a great way to get the kids away from screens and to develop their strength and durability to take them into next their next season of sport. This can help to reduce the risk of future injuries as well as recovery from existing injuries and niggles. As well as this, it can generally increase their confidence in movement and teach them another form of exercise that they continue with.
The young rehab classes start with a 45 mins session with one of our Sports and Rehab Therapists where participants are set a bespoke programme tailored to their specific goals and sport. The remaining 4 sessions are run in groups of up to 3 people under direct supervision.
Sessions are booked as blocks of 5 sessions lasting 45 minutes which includes the initial 1-2-1 session. Each block costs £150. These could be taken as one per week taking them up to the end of the summer holidays or could also be taken more regularly to gain some momentum and maximise what they get from the sessions.
We understand that you may be going away at some point over Summer and that other plans will come up. For that reason we are flexible and classes can be booked in at various times each week or moved forward to another week to work around your plans.* Sessions can be booked throughout the week, including Saturday mornings and right up until 8pm during the week.
Who might benefit from Young Rehab?
Kids and teens often go through some big changes between the ages of 10 – 14 as they experience a high rate of growth. Combined with lot’s of sports and physical activities, the growing body can sometimes struggle and pain and injury rears it’s head. This can be highly frustrating, as G.P.s will often advise these youngsters to just rest – but try telling that to a competitive teenager who loves sport! Young Rehab provides a great way to support these kids in staying active and getting back to their sport as quick as possible.
We’ve had many kids experience the benefit of of Young Rehab here at goPhysio.
We’ve seen a large number of young gymnasts and dancers. These athletes often have wonderful flexibility but can lack stability, strength and movement control in key areas. This in turn can lead to some common injuries such as knee pain.
Kids who participate in sports with lots of repeated movements also frequently seek our help. Kicking a football, swimming and tennis are great examples. These youngsters are often training or competing many times a week and sometimes their growing bodies just can’t cope.
It’s not only for the very sporty kids – growing children by the very nature of growing can experience aches and pains that can be effectively managed by learning some key exercises.
If you are interested in booking your child in, or you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact the clinic on 023 8025 3317. We can get started immediately!
*A 24 hour cancellation policy applies. All sessions must be used within 3 months of the 1st appointment.
