Burlington’s Youth Program
At Cornerstone Physiotherapy in Burlington Ontario, we believe that athletics can be an important part of a young persons development. As members of the Burlington and Oakville community who have competitive kids, we recognize that sports injuries are taking on a more prominent role in kids sports than ever before. However, we have noticed that the care for these injuries can be very frustrating for the athlete, parents and coaches. As our kids train more, and compete at a higher level, keeping them healthy requires an intelligent approach to training, competing and rehabilitation. To meet this need Cornerstone Physiotherapy has developed our Youth Athlete Program.
As experienced Physiotherapists and respected members of the sport medicine community in the greater Toronto Area, Cornerstone is a clinic of choice for elite, varsity and pro athletes. These cases have always required more resources and close communication to ensure everyone is on the same page to execute the return to sport plan. The Youth Athlete Program will bring this elite level of attention to youth sport finally giving our local kids, parents and coaches all of the tools to maximize success.
Being a part of our Youth Athlete Program in Burlington is very different than simply visiting a Physio a couple of times a week until you can get back in the game. While we deliver skilled treatment of acute injuries, this program offers so much more. Below are some of the ways that we ensure our Burlington and Oakville athletes are set up for success.
The Physiotherapy experts at Cornerstone have developed a screening test to identify areas of weakness in a young and developing athlete and provide focused training to reduce the likelihood of injury. Our screening process looks at functional movements, strength, coordination and mobility. We bring our athletes through this test at the start and end of each season to provide much needed focus to coaches, trainers and parents ensuring that our kids are doing everything they can to maximize their performance and minimize their chances of sports injuries.
Expedited Access to Care
We know that we need to keep our kids engaged in the recovery process. Following injury a delay before a clear plan is put in place can turn into a major setback. At our clinic in Burlington we prioritize our assessment of young athletes injuries to ensure we can get them the right care as fast as possible.
Communication is Paramount
Whether we have just screened your child pre-season or we are seeing them after an injury we will take the lead on communication with all of the stakeholders in your child’s recovery. A detailed report will go to the Coach, trainer, parents and physicians outlining the diagnosis and plan for return to sport. Clear restrictions will be put in place and milestones will be identified that must be reached before your child can move onto the next phase of their return. Too many of our kids end up becoming chronically injured because the load on their injury is not managed appropriately the first time around. Cornerstone’s Youth Athlete Program seeks to change that by providing a clear plan that everyone can follow while supporting coaches and trainers who have questions or concerns.
The Best Treatment
In the Cornerstone Youth Athlete Program you will have access to Physiotherapists at the top of their field. We know that experience matters and your child deserves the best. Our Physiotherapists have outstanding credentials and are supported by a large team of medical professionals.
Staying Connected and Fit
An injury can be the beginning of the end for a child’s participation in sport if handled poorly. Being cut off from training or competition has negative psychological and physical impacts. We believe strongly in keeping the injured athlete connected to the team. We support the process of keeping an injured athlete fit by ensuring coaches and trainers know what the athlete can be doing so that their body is ready to get back in the game when the injury has healed.
A True Partnership
When training and competing questions come up all the time. If you are a part of the Cornerstone Young Athlete Community we are on your team and will support your success throughout your development. We are always available to athletes, parents, trainers and coaches to discuss an athlete’s development, risk profile or any other problems that may arise.
At Cornerstone we know that your child’s sports are important to them.
We understand the life lessons that they are getting from putting in the hard work and seeing results.
