About Pediatric & Adolescent Care
The tissues surrounding a child’s muscles or skeleton are far different
from those of an adult. The way a child responds to trauma may result
in problems an adult wouldn’t face, such as long-term deformity
(The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons). Pediatric orthopaedists
are trained to address the specific issues of growing skeletal and muscular systems.
These include spinal deformities, genetic disorders, and fractures that
affect a child’s physical development. One particularly common problem
is uneven limb length that comes from interrupted development. Other problems
may result from these issues, such as poor posture or an abnormal gait.
