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.
