AthletesIf your child or teen has an injury or illness that affects sports performance, exercise, or activity, Pediatrics West has the expertise, experience, and qualifications to treat their youth specific condition.

Children and teens should not be treated as small adults. In growing children and teens, injuries and medical problems in the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints (i.e., musculoskeletal conditions) often are quite different from conditions more commonly seen in an older person. Pediatrics West’s physicians know how to examine and treat children and teens in a way that makes them relaxed and cooperative.

Please call our office at (978) 577-0437 to schedule an appointment.

You may also schedule an appointment using the Online Appointment Request Form.
