More and more emphasis is being placed on teaching our youngsters about living a healthy lifestyle. Kids are taught early on to eat well, stay active and to be aware of their bodies. Much advancement has been made in the areas of pediatric diet and exercise routines.
As we encourage more activity and exercise we need to be aware of the strains that this can put on a developing child. Open growth plates place a unique set of circumstances on the management of these young athletes.
