As can be expected, bone breaks or fractures are very common in children. Bone breaks are the fourth most commonly accidental injury for children under 10 years old. An arm sling can help in these cases.
Broken bones can be difficult to recognize if the bone is not displaced. Signs and symptoms of bone breaks include:
- Limited mobility
The top arm (humerus), as well as collarbone (clavicle) fractures, are among the most frequent shoulder problems in teenagers and children. Shattered collarbones are the more frequent of the 2 injuries because they are less effectively covered by muscle or fat. Any tumble onto an extended forearm or a straight blow to the bones of your kid frequently results in these types of injuries.
Although your child's bone may occasionally need an operation to fix it following a break, bracing the area around their collarbone and arm using a kids' shoulder sling, figure 8 bracing, or medical casting with a child waterproof cast cover is frequently sufficient therapy.
