Children are not small adults – they have bodies that are still growing and need specialized care. Pediatric orthopedics involves treating these growing muscles, bones, and joints through medicine, surgery, and rehabilitation. Treatments are different depending on the age of the child and the symptoms. Management of sprains, fractures or syndromes is geared toward each individual family and circumstance, with the goal of returning to prior activity levels.
