If you think that your child has a fracture, come see Westchester Sport and Spine today. Skip the emergency room, skip the urgent care, come directly to our office, and see the doctor on the same day.

Kids don’t sprain joints as much as they fracture them. So whereas in an adult case, you might say, “Oh, it’s just a sprain in the ankle.” With kids you have to worry that the injury is actually a fracture of the growth plate.

It’s important to treat a growth plate appropriately or it could affect the growth of the child’s arm or leg. The arm or leg could be crooked permanently if it’s not addressed correctly. You don’t want to miss a fracture on a kid. There are many orthopedic surgeons and healthcare practices that don’t deal with a lot of children and can easily miss this important diagnosis.

We treat a high volume of pediatric orthopedic and pediatric sports medicine case. The most common pediatric fractures are in the wrist and ankle. For young baseball and softball players, we treat a lot of elbow and shoulder injuries. In other adolescent athletes, we treat knee and hip injuries.

We see kids who were pitching and now they’re experiencing pain, or they kick the soccer ball and now their foot hurts, or they twisted an ankle running, or they slipped playing or they fell down the stairs. These things happen. But if the pain is persistent it may be a fracture – don’t let your child tough it out, get them child checked today. Call us and get right in on the same day.

The best part about being a kid is that they recover quicker, they don’t usually have problems with range of motion, and usually they do not need physical therapy.
