Physiotherapist Jess Menzies will join us for SMA NT’s June Professional Development Series to discuss common sporting injuries in children and adolescents.

Some of the topics covered in this two-hour seminar will include:

  • What is adolescence?
  • How active are our kids?
  • Common injuries in these life stages
  • Injury prevention

Participants will also have the opportunity to engage in some practical applications for managing these injuries, and any questions from the audience are most welcome.
