Childs muscle condition advice?
A friend of mine has an 11 yr old boy who has recently been told by a physiotherapist that his body is growing too fast for his muscles, and that he has to cut his sport down to a couple of times a week for the next few years or even until he stops growing! He’s a very sporty lad and this is obviously very concerning for him. Apparently he has to see a Podiatrist too as there is some issue with the tendons in his foot. I’m not sure there was an exact name given of his muscle shortning condition, see i’m wondering whether or not he just has very tight muscles and needs to concentrate on flexibility training for a while?
Anyone any ideas please?, the prospect of not doing much sport for the next few years is so painfull to him!
