Broken bones in children are common, typically occurring after a fall. Symptoms of broken bones in kids include pain, swelling, and/or abnormal appearance of the area concerned.
Treatment of a broken bone most often involves a cast or other method to keep the break from moving while it heals. Sometimes broken bones in children heal without any special treatment. Occasionally surgery is required.
