Injury Prevention and Motor Development for Children and Adolescents

At Team Elite Health, strength and conditioning is not only primarily for rehabilitation of acute and chronic injuries, we utilize strength and conditioning for Injury Prevention and Motor Development in Children Adolescents and Adults.

An appropriate strength and conditioning programme will increase the motor skills, coordination, strength and power in children and adolescents. And that regularly engaging in Resistance based Strength and Conditioning can ultimately lead to a 50% reduction in sport-related injuries. Children and adolescents can improve strength by 30% to 50% after just 8 to 12 weeks of a well-designed strength training program.

Injury Prevention

Strength training is a very effective tool for injury prevention for a variety of reasons. Strength training improves the strength of the muscles, tendons, and even the ligaments and bones. Stronger muscles and tendons help hold the body in proper alignment and protect the bones and joints when moving or under impact. This is especially important in growing athletes as most injuries come from weaknesses or imbalances in the body caused by growing and maturity of the bones and muscles. Furthermore, Children and adolescents are the largest participants in physical activity and they are at particular risk of these injuries because of a high level of exposure, improper technique, poor proprioception, and muscle weaknesses.

Motor learning and competency is integral to the long-term athletic development of youths.
Synergistic development of muscular strength and motor skill competency is central to long-term athletic development. However, these qualities need to be developed in a logical and progressive manner, and training methods need to be developmentally appropriate, engaging, and enjoyable for young athletes to help them build a positive association with strength and
conditioning-based activities.

At Team Elite Health we work as a team of trained Physiotherapists with experience in Strength and Conditioning to play a pivotal role in ensuring proper technique, form, progression of exercises, load management and safety is observed and managed, especially in the younger population. We believe our facilities allow us to actively engage adolescents in a fun, cooperative and engaging environment so that this positive association to strength and conditioning, injury development and motor development can be obtained and maintained throughout athletic development.
