Child Orthopedic Care In ND
When children have a bone, muscle, or joint disorder or injury, only a health care provider with knowledge of pediatric orthopedic care will do. That’s because any treatment affecting a child’s musculoskeletal system can potentially affect that child’s growth.
Because children are still growing, their bone structure and its response to orthopedic problems and treatment will differ from that of an adult. And if the problem is not identified and addressed early on, it can lead to long-term complications.
Some of the most common orthopedic issues among kids include:
- Broken bones
- Deformities such as clubfoot or uneven limb length
- Gait or movement abnormalities
- Sports injuries
Falls, tumbles, and accidents occur a lot when a child is young, increasing their risk of upper and lower extremity injuries. As children age, the likelihood of orthopedic injuries such as broken bones, ACL tears, and more increase as they become more active in the world, join sports teams, and try new activities.
Our orthopedic specialists are well-versed in the physical evaluation and communication with patients of all ages, including children, so that they are comfortable sharing information about their issues or symptoms.
