Kids/ Adolescent Resources

Here at Avenues Physio-Fitness we are passionate about working collaboratively with children and young people, their parents and caregivers, schools and other specialists to support them to
participate and achieve. It is imperative that us, as physiotherapists ensure that children and youth are empowered in their knowledge of their pain, injury, or body functional capacity. This information needs to be provided at a level that can be understood by children and adolescents.

We have collated some of our favourite resources from our colleagues that link to other websites or you-tube clips which help children and adolescents understand concepts that are discussed within healthcare.
