Treating Spine, Arm & Leg Fractures
Fractures are common to children, as their bones are not yet fully developed
and they do not know their physical limits yet. The most common bones
broken are the clavicle and the tibia, which are both prone to receiving
traumatic impact. Treating fractures in growing bodies requires extra
insight, as growing limbs may deform as a result of poorly-treated breaks.
There are many types of fractures. Common fractures are the result of traumatic
impact, like a slide tackle or falling from a bike. Others are the result
of overwork or improper use, such as stress fractures. Fractures also
vary by severity, some requiring only a cast while others need extensive
surgery. A good orthopaedist can be crucial for making decisions about
your child’s treatment.
