Health tips for children





A fracture, or broken bone, can often occur in children, usually after a fall or an injury while playing sports.
It can be difficult to tell if a bone is broken, but some signs to look for include swelling, pain, decreased movement of the area, or an unwillingness to use the area.
Injuries with these characteristics should be evaluated by your physician. You should also go to the doctor if your child has hurt his ankle or knee and is unable to bear weight.
To decrease pain, you can use a sling or sprint or wrap the area in ice before going to the doctor.
If your child has a neck or back injury, or if you can see the bone, you should activate your local emergency services.
