Sports Performance Bulletin
From the desk of Jonathan Pye, Sports Injury Bulletin Editor

A free gift for all injury therapists

The mistakes some practitioners make when treating young athletes (and how you can avoid them)

Read on now to find out more about this important new research report...

Dear Professional,
Young athletes are not miniature adults.
We can’t treat their aches and pains like we would a fully grown athlete.
Why? Because a child’s bones, ligaments, muscles and tendons are still growing and taking shape...
And what causes an injury in a young athlete is not necessarily the same as what causes one in an adult.
I want to help remedy this, by offering you some of the best and latest research on injuries in young athletes available today.
Knowledge that could transform your practice, and help make you one of the most trusted therapists in your community...
Chances are you see young, enthusiastic athletes in your clinic from time to time, and naturally you care about delivering a high-quality service to them.
You don’t want a promising athlete to end up with long-term problems, and fail to realise their true potential in their chosen sport.
That means having the knowledge to give the correct diagnosis and provide the right solutions.
Anxious parents and concerned coaches will continue to come to you, wanting to know why their child is hurt, and how you can help them.
So it’s vital that you know what the differences are...
Which aches and pains you can dismiss as knocks or ‘growing pains’, and which ones need your professional intervention.
This is precisely why I want to give you a free copy of my new research report – How to Spot Sports Injuries in Young Athletes.
It contains the very latest insights and practical advice you need to provide the most effective injury solutions, regardless of your chosen discipline.
In this new report, you’ll find expert contributors including professional coaches, chartered physiotherapists and a consultant paediatric orthopaedic surgeon, based at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.
Once you’ve read this report, you’ll be better prepared to:
  Recognise the warning signs of childhood injuries
  Advise coaches on when a young athlete can/can’t train
  Deliver effective injury prevention and treatment strategies
By keeping on top of the latest research on youth sports injuries, you’ll deliver an even better quality service and ensure your clients recommend you to others.
This could just be the most important thing you read all year...

One report... four expert advisors... trusted injury solutions

With How to Spot Sports Injuries in Young Athletes, you'll have instant access to information that is usually the reserve of specialist clinics and expert medical panels.
To find this level of advice and knowledge on your own would not only be costly, but incredibly time-consuming (not ideal when you have rehab sessions to plan and clients to see!).
My new report makes it easy. All the hard work has been done for you, so that the most important information is right at your fingertips.
Best of all, I’m offering it to you free.
My contributors are all practising specialists, and are renowned in the sports injury field. Let me introduce you to them now:
Sean Fyfe is the strength and conditioning coach and assistant tennis coach for the Tennis Australia National High Performance Academy based in Brisbane. He also operates his own sports physiotherapy clinic.
Deborah Eastwood MB FRCS is a consultant paediatric orthopaedic surgeon, based at the Hospital for Sick Children, Gt Ormond St, London and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. Her special interest is in working with disabled children in sports and non-sporting contexts.
Rosemary Keer MSc MCSP MACP is a chartered physiotherapist with a clinical and research interest in the management of the hypermobile patient. She is editor (with Rodney Grahame) of Hypermobility Syndrome – Recognition and Management for Physiotherapists, pub: Butterworth-Heinemann 2003.
Mark Palmer is a New Zealand-trained physiotherapist who has been working in English football for the past five years. He has spent the past three seasons as head physiotherapist at Sheffield Wednesday FC.
Their collective expertise will broaden your knowledge base and advise you on key areas of treating young athletes such as:
 Supporting children with loose joints
  Childhood diagnoses in young athletes
  Young backs and pars fractures
  Long-term athlete development
  And much more...
It’s a report that no caring professional can afford to miss.
Especially if you’re treating a young athlete right now, or in the near future...
Your free report could help you spot a problem that might have otherwise been overlooked.

Provide the right treatment at the right time - and help young athletes recover faster

By now, I'm sure you want to know more about the insights and knowledge revealed in my new report, and how it's going to help advance your treatment of young athletes.
So here's a little preview of what you'll learn...
How to tell when a ‘dull pain’ is a sign of something more serious
Some injuries are unique to the growing years, so it's vital that you know what they are – and how to spot them. Mark Palmer reveals the ones you should not miss, their links to childhood diseases, and provides you with practical case studies on how you can treat injuries from football-related groin pain to the adolescent knee.
Give the right support to children with loose joints
Seen a child complaining of pain for no reason? You may need to consider Hypermobile Syndrome.Deborah Eastwood and Rosemary Keer explain how to test for hypermobility in young athletes, and offer you simple strategies to manage this problem effectively.
Revealed: the right approach to dealing with young and fragile backs
Junior athletes, and football players in particular, are vulnerable to pars fractures. Don't write off their symptoms as growing pains! Mark Palmer provides you with management advice for treating this injury, backed by clinical reasoning and evidence.
How to ensure young athletes train safely and effectively
What is the Long-term Athlete Development (LTAD) framework? And how does it affect your work as a therapist? Sean Fyfe explains the crucial reasons why you need to be aware of this training approach for young athletes, and have strategies in place that limit the risks and effects of injury.
