Forecast | Fracture of the arm of a child


The prognosis for childhood fractures is generally considered good, as childhood injuries show a good tendency to heal themselves or to undergo spontaneous correction. However, this depends, among other things, on the stage of development and the location, type and extent of the fracture. Special attention should be paid to fractures affecting the joints or growth plates. X-rays to check the fractured arm are very important to detect and correct any malpositions early on in order to ensure normal growth.
