    Importance of choosing sports suitable for the child’s body

    While the muscles of the children develop with training, bones do not grow at the same speed. This can cause problems in bones and bone growth areas. This problem increases when the child does not engage in a sport fitting her anatomic structure and motor development. Therefore, it is beneficial for parents to consult a paediatric orthopaedist when selecting a sports branch for their children. Experts do not only check the child’s muscle structure, height and weight but also their motor development. Hand-eye coordination, jumping, running, standing on one foot, switching between legs are also evaluated to determine the most suitable sports for the child. When the child choses a suitable sport majority of injuries are prevented. The child has a chance to engage (even if not professionally) in a sports she loves for the rest of her life.
