Children are not simply young adults. The growing skeleton has many unique features, as does each child. Our active youth are involved in a wide variety of activities, and it seems like bumps, bruises, and even broken bones are an inevitable part of growing up.
While most injuries that occur in childhood can be treated without surgery, some require reduction and casting, and others may require bracing or casting for protection during the healing process. Muscle and tendon conditions may benefit from guided therapy that will help your child reach their potential.
