Biomechanics vs. Psychology, Is My Child Crazy?
Does your child come home from camp or practice complaining of foot, ankle, shin or knee pain? Have you been told your child's comfort is a result of growing pains or that the pain is simply in their head? Here at Dr. Lee Cohen Associates, we tend to believe that your child is not a good old-fashioned looney-toon, but that there may in fact be an underlying cause for the pain they are experiencing. Our sports medicine professionals are trained to assess and treat commonly misdiagnosed lower extremity pathologies in young athletes.
The key to our success is our commensurate understanding of lower extremity biomechanics, especially in young, growing athletes. As part of your initial evaluation at Dr. Lee Cohen Associates, your child will receive a full biomechanical evaluation that consists of limb length assessment, strength and flexibility measurements, gait analysis and functional performance testing. At the conclusion of the examination, we will determine the cause of your child's discomfort and provide definitive solutions going forward. We can assure you that your child is not crazy, but simply needs professionals that are trained to look for the answers in the right places.
