Knee pain in young hockey players is something that I see quite regularly in my clinic and in sporty kids. When we are talking young, I mean any age from 10-16 years old. It is far more common in girls than boys.
There are many reasons a young athlete gets knee pain, here we will cover a few of the main possible reasons and what we can do to help. Firstly we must make sure that we have excluded the big problems.
ACL injuries in Young Field Hockey Players is becoming more and more common. Everyone knows that having an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury is a big deal this is mainly because you know that you are out for a season, and that the rehab is hard work for 6-9 months. ACL injruies are becoming more common in adolescent sports, this maybe because our young athletes are involved in more high level training at a younger age. If you have an ACL injury below the age of bone maturity there is a greater risk to damaging the growth plate that has not fully cemented yet. This can not only cause long term problems but is more delicate to operate on. As we reach skeletal maturity, around 15-16 years the growth plates will be more than likely to be cemented and then ACL rupture presents similar to an adult.
