Broken bones. They are an unfortunate event that many kids will have one at some point in their childhood. At Just 4 Kids, we treat broken bones often and know the tell-tale signs of them. But as a parent, what should you look out for, and in the event of a broken bone, what should you do?
Any scrape, bonk or “owie” is a big deal to your child, but figuring out if there is any actual damage can be a hard task. A sprain is no exception. Sprains are a difficult injury to self diagnose, especially in a child. Sometimes the symptoms don’t show up until the next day. So how can a parent identify this type of injury? Just 4 Kids is here to help.
There are times when a sprain or strain should be treated by a doctor. If your child’s injury is severe, it may require additional treatment such as physical therapy, corticosteroid injections, or even surgery.
Broken bones are an unfortunate event that many kids deal with at least once in their childhood. At Just 4 Kids Urgent Care, we treat broken bones often and know the tell-tale signs of them. If you think your child may have a broken bone, we provide x-ray services that are child-friendly.
X-rays are an important part of the healing process for a broken bone. They are necessary to identify just what type of fracture your child has. We have a wonderful team of radiologic technologists to help us diagnose broken bones and other issues so we can treat them in the most appropriate manner.
